  27. Ode to Volunteers Many will be shocked to find, When the day of judgment nears, That there's a special place in HeavenSet aside for volunteers.Furnished with big recliners, Satin couches and footstools: Where there's no committee chairman, No group leaders or carpools.No eager team that needs a coach,No bazaar and no bake sale;There will be nothing to staple,Not one thing to fold or mail.Telephone lists will be outlawed,But a finger snap will bringCool drinks and gourmet dinnersAnd rare feasts fit for a king.You ask, "Who will serve these privileged fewand work for all they're worth?"Why, all those who reaped the benefit andNOT ONCE VOLUNTEERED on Earth!
