It can’t be heaven…

If it’s like sleeping, then I’m not impressed,
or walking into a light I’ll need sunglasses
and I’ve heard it will be like a great banquet
but that word ‘like’ always bothered me
because if heaven’s just another simile
then I’ll wait for the real thing, thank you,
and it’d better be better than a donut
although donuts are nice but not only so
and freshness seems most appropriate
if there’s seafood but that seems doubtful
and more like magic than a divine feast
but it just won’t be heaven if there’s no cake.
