With one last gasp he left the stage of life no curtains were drawn as much as he was that last night perhaps a smile trickled across his soon stilled lips as he was greeted on the other sude by thunderous applause his final exit began like the darkness of a backstage he entered that tunnel of light and all around were the thousands of men he brought hope to beating spirited hands in standing ovations following him as he greeted God and cracked a one-liner that made angels howl.... "Where ya been...God??? it's hell down there!!" "The boys in Iraq and Afghanistan are hoping you'll put in a one-night appearance and remove two genetic mistakes.... What's bin a Sad dam shame!!" ahh Bob Hope He could bring a smile to the face of war he could make the shudders of fear turn into sputters of laughter young boys who had seen bodies split in hamburger by shrapnel watched the faces of their brothers-in-arms split into smiles that stretched across endless battalions he brought Christmas every year to those far from home he was a bit of a Santa's helper with his ski nose and those elf-like ears he hated to fly but he always boarded his fear to help lighten the hearts of warriors burdened with death a lot of the men he entertained shared their last laugh with him he was the last hope they knew he danced in jungles and in deserts and in godforsaken areas that could have stilled his quick step far too early he will live on past the echoes of the last gunshot and long beyond the peace that one day will bless all men though a mere century has claimed his weary bones he has joined all those he so dearly loved to join the world is a bit more Hopeless tonight and there's a twinkle in the heavens from the joy in God's eyes
