A Travel Agent's Lament - Anon

I was sent this by an an old colleague - thanks Professor Gill - so a little frivolity for today.

A Travel Agent's Lament

Last night as I lay sleeping
I died or so it seemed,
Then I went to heaven
But only in my dream

Up there St Peter met me
Standing at the pearly gates,
He said "I must check your record
Please stand here and wait."

He turned and said "Your record
Is covered with terrible flaws,
On earth I see you rallied
For every losing cause."

I see that you drank alcohol
And smoked and partied too,
Fact is, you've done everything
A good person should never do.

We can't have people like you up here
Your life was full of sin,
Then he read the last of my record
Took my hand and said "Come in."

He led me up to the Big Boss and said
"Take her in and treat her well",
She used to work in Travel
She's done her time in hell."

We cannot attribute it other than I think it comes from a Travel Agent or BA in the UK. If you find the originator - please advise and I will attribute it correctly.
