One day at the Pearly Gates,
St. Peter was getting older,
When Jesus happened by-by fate,
And Pete said-"Would you take over?"

"I need a break to stretch my legs,
Would you watch the gate for me?"
Being the kindest man that ever lived,
He said, "Sure, take a break old Pete."

A moment later came a man,
Quite old and shedding tears,
Asking about his long lost son,
He hadn't seen in years.

Jesus said, "Well tell me sir,
About this missing lad?"
The man said he was unusual,
With the "scarring" that he had.

He said, "It is my son you see,
He has holes in his hands and feet"
Jesus stood back and said with glee;
"Father dear I wondered, when again we'd
finally meet."

The man looked up with tearful joy,
Said, "I can't believe it's true,
Are you my one and only son?
Pinnochio...Is that you?"

You are a bad, bad person. Your penance is 13 Hail Marys and an hour of quite contemplation upon your sins. Now go to your room. Oh, and stop playing with those dolls.

P.S. Nice twist.

Toe

I echo what Nan said, with just one minor addition - You'd better HOPE He has a sense of humor. His "kid" got real rough treatment when he dropped by to lend us a hand, yanno.

I loved the style of the poetry, and that is a classic story, ya scalawag!
