“Everybody in Heaven Has a Sweet Tooth” by Steve Sibra

Everybody in Heaven Has a Sweet Tooth

Everybody in heaven
has a sweet tooth that never rots
no matter how many Tootsie Pops
try to drill into it. Nobody there
ever vomits. No matter what they shove
inside it just passes right through.

Everything in Heaven looks delicious
and when you taste it, it
really, really is. Nothing hurts.
Nobody gets a gut ache, nobody ever
has to endure an enema
unless what they really want is to
endure an enema. In that case
bring it on.
