Heaven’s Perfect Game

A preacher told me once that in heaven
he’d play all perfect rounds of golf.
Never again would he loose to Evan
and those who loved to mock and call him soft.
What does it mean to play a perfect round?
It is a hole-in-one on every hole,
each ball he hits rings out in perfect sound,
each swing he takes, the club fulfills its role.
The days are gone when he would hit buckets
of balls across the street at the driving
range. He can play and never lose a bet.
He’ll keep an honest score, he’s done cheating.
I call bullshit on this. Effectively
he says heaven is vacation eternally
