QuoteLutherans by Larry O. Dean, from Dogs Singing edited by Lendennie, JessieQuote

Lutherans
by Larry O. Dean

They told me
in all self-
righteous
seriousness

dogs don't go
to heaven.
Thoughtlessly.
A child!

* * *

Although now
I don’t believe
in their heaven,
I'd like to

believe, wherever
Lady is,
she's barking
happily,

chasing scared
Lutherans
up trees
for all eternity.
