Gated Community

If no one is to come in

why have a gate?

Why not just make it a fence and have done with it?


You know, when some people say things,

it makes you wonder whether

they really want ANYONE to come in?

Or certainly question the divine commitment to

equal soteriological opportunities.

Call me heretical, a slapdash liberal, but

I don’t think that sounds like God.

Sure, the way is narrow, and you gotta take up your cross

But what if anyone willing, anyone who wants it

anyone who means what they say,

the pearly gate opens to them?

Would that be so terrible?

Why would you place stumbling blocks on their path?

Is life really just one long entrance exam?

Maybe security IS as tight as they say.

I dunno. I’ve always thought that

the phrase ‘gated community’

is a bit of an oxymoron.
