Last Call / Closing Time

Last Call / Closing Time

Last call; its closing time

Fifteen minutes; finish your wine

Okay people; ten till two

Closing time; waiting on you

Drink up; pay up, taxi in the lot

Closing time; like it or not

Two minute warning; finish those beers

Don’t know where you’re going, but you can’t stay here

If only we knew; when the Savior would appear

We could get it all settled; before He got here

In fifteen minutes; He opens the eastern skies

Closing time then; wouldn’t be a surprise

Ten minutes till the hour; make ready one and all

But we don’t get that infamous “last call”

No two minute warning; to make up our minds

Only hints in His Word at the closing time

And most are too something to get into His Word

Excuses, excuses, all that’s heard

But look at the scriptures and check out the headlines

The last call is coming; its closing time

Irv, so many of us are so consumed with life that we take for granted we
will be here tomorrow, that we will have all the time we need. Yet we have
no guarantee of time. That puts us at ease and lukewarm rather than tend
the fire so it does not go out. I really enjoyed this poem. I EXALT you on it.
