when his guests ask him if he's thought about the end of the world, the
afterlife and redemption, he asks them if they've thought about the
skeletonizer (a moth whose larva eats the leaves of plants)...he has
obviously thought about their questions and sees the answer in the moth and
the plant but in spite of the fact that he accepts that death comes to all
living things, including himself, he's able to accept it and enjoy living
his life, while his guests are so busy with thoughts of the hereafter, that
they're missing the joy of life...if the guests' days are so filled with
proselitizing, with no time for being happy on earth, they may well be
missing the beauty of life...i wonder if they even considered eating a
piece of his gracious offer of a slice of lemon chiffon pie!!

This poem is great because it's funny and makes you think. He writes about
being hospitible but his guess just want to talk about death, and
afterlife. And at the end he feels sorry for the Jahova Witness's as they
are leaving his house and onto another.

This poem made me laugh and think the author is enjoying life enough to be
honest. He is willing to share his food with others (strangers or friends)
and has time to take a nap. Why do others rush through life so much they
can't relax and yet think they should impose their views on others.
