Satire Sunday: Leftovers Indeed

They'd all been Raptured up, just like it said
In Bibles ev'rywhere. The clothing piles
Stayed undisturbed for days; nobody's head
Could wrap around just what this meant. No smiles,
No tears, just numbness. When at last the State
Sent crews around, six weeks had passed them by.
Then slowly, people came 'round to their fate
As "Left Behinds" and then nary an eye
Was batted. All the bigots and the ones
Who'd preached of hate while claiming to preach love,
Who'd started wars and lobbied to keep funds
From helping poor unfortunates, each of
The clinic bombers, gone forevermore!
A whole new life was possible, therefore!
