SCENE II.—HEAVEN. A field near the log cabin of MARC and JOEL.
Enter SHAKESPEARE, POE, DICKINSON, CLEMENS, TOLKIEN, CAMUS, and CHAUCER.
Shakes. If we angels have offended,
Give ear–and all might be mended–
Dorom have but slumber’d here
While these visions have appeared.
And this heavenly theme,
No more real than a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend;
Heaven’s not for living men,
Earth is for the breathing buck.
If you have a little luck
And your heart and soul are strong,
In heaven, we’ll meet ere long;
Else this angel a liar call;
So, good lives unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Peter shall restore amends.[Exeunt.]
