Wednesday; A Satire; The News Paper Man;

Satire; The News Paper Man;

Waiting at death’s door,  the news paper man said:” the good news are, there is no hell; the bad news are there is no heaven”. 
A deep sigh and  he floats softly as an atom; finally settling in a sapling... 
100 years have passed just like that. The sapling grew and grew and grew  stretching its branches to the sky. 
Ready; the chainsaw made short work and the pulp mill was waiting.
In the morning, when  turning  the pages of a News Paper  one can hear faintly a sigh…and a hiss…bloody  hell!
