He Missed It!

He set the empty on the bar

The bartender brought another brew

Before him, a dancer on a pole

Made him take a closer view

She gave him a wink and smile

He smiled at her in return

Figured he’d wait until closing

His lust being his only concern

He closed the door behind her

Got in and started the car

His apartment was nearby

They didn’t have to go very far

Into his bedroom, he led her

With one thing on his mind

Something unexpected happened

An explanation, he couldn’t find

He heard the sound of a crash

And to the window, he went

Saw something that amazed him

As raptured saints began their ascent

He saw a very bad wreck outside

In the distance, he saw flames

Sirens were in the background

It seemed that nothing was the same

Then he remembered something

He had gone  to church as a child

How he thought it was boring

And had rebelled and gone wild

Now he had missed the Rapture

Because of the pleasure of sin

Without the Holy Spirit’s presence

His situation was impossible to win

In a panic, he fell to his knees

For forgiveness, he pleaded his case

To deaf ears, his prayers arose

He lost his chance of saving grace

It would haunt him for eternity

Knowing that he had been a fool

He traded Heaven for going to Hell

Because he thought sin was cool!
