Ernie - Heaven's Pig
There was a vacancy in heaven
that God just had to fill
keeping the angels company
not just anyone would fill the bill.
God looked all through heaven
and he could not find
a suitable companion
with a face sweet and kind.
When all the possibilities were exhausted
God turned His face toward earth
His eyes fell upon Ernie
with his pug face and his girth.
Then God spoke to Ernie
in a sweet and loving way
and asked him to please come home
to heaven this very day.
God said, "you’re my creation
and I need to call you back home,
for we have a need in heaven
no one can fill but you alone".
The angels gently ushered
Ernie into their midst
to where he now helps the angels
their missions to assist.
