A Theological Dissertation on Heavens and Harlow

Volume 18, Issue 8

Frank Hunt Rentfrow

Fenwick Rodney McLeod


The Norsemen had a theory

That on a warrior's death

He was flung up to Vahalla

On his last expiring breath.

And there he met the Valkyries

Careening through the sky.

Ah-if Harlow were a Valkyrie

I'd toss my shield and die!

The Islamatic theory is

A pearl without a price.

The ultimate in heavens,

A soldier's paradise

Where, beside a stream of liquor

The golden maidens lie.

Ah-if Harlow were a Houri

I'd run amok and die!
