The Late John Neverready

The Late John Neverready.

John Neverready lived.
It was his fate
To be forever late.
No matter how he'd fume and fuss,
He'd miss the bus.
He was, of course, a failure.
John Neverready died.
Arrived an hour late
At Heaven's gate,
And was condemned to Hell;
But though he fell,
Of course he missed the bus!
John Neverready, spook,
Thus has no home,
But is condemned to roam
Through all eternity—
Make you and me—
Well—miss the bus!
