Standing Room Only

‘This population explosion’,
Said Peter to St Paul,
‘Is getting far too much,
Just look at that crowd in the hall.
Even here in heaven
There isn’t any room,
I think the world could do with less,
Much less fruit in the womb.’
Thus heaven is overcrowded,
the numbers are starting to tell,
So when the next lot knock at the gates,
tell ‘em to go to hell.

PS I always reach for Milligan first thing on my birthday mornings as what better way to begin the day with a laugh or a smile. Thanks again Spike.

    Very happy birthday old boy. What a fun way to be reminded. Since it’s overcrowded up there, maybe we’d better hang around down here a bit longer. 🍻

    In my opinion, you can't get better than the genius that is Spike Milligan. Wonderful, wonderful sense of humour!
