Volunteers -- God Bless Them!

Many will be shocked to find,
When the day of judgment nears,
That there's a special place in heaven
Set aside for volunteers.

Furnished with big recliners.
Satin couches and foot stools;
Where there's no committee chairmen,
No group leaders or car pools,
No eager team that needs a coach,
No bazaar and no bake sale.

There will be nothing to staple,
Not one thing to fold or mail.

Telephone lists will be outlawed,
but a finger snap will bring
Cool drinks and gourmet dinners
and treats fit for a king.

You ask: "Who'll serve these privileged few
and work for all they're worth?"
"Why, all those who reap the benefits
and not once volunteer on earth!"
