ODE TO A COUNSELOR
A counselor knocked at Heaven's gate,
Full of hope and cheer.
"What did you do on Earth", Saint Peter asked,
"To gain admission here?"
"I was a high school counselor, Sir, for many and many a year."
The gates of Heaven opened wide;
Saint Peter rang a bell.
"Come in, dear counselor, come in to Heaven;
You've already had your share of Hell!"
