Which Bucket Are You In?

Accept some beef or pork versus

Chicken or fish, what’s the

Difference? Black or white,

Man or woman, anything!

It’s all the same, the world is full

Of plurality, variety, so many.

Why is it so hard for us to open

A place to everyone? Such a

Painful process, for all involved.

And the powerful don’t seem to

Merit their position, sometimes.

Damn it, just call it like it is!

Why can’t we be rational,

See it like it is, not as our bigotry

Twists it into being? It’s so

Simple, yet so hard to convince

People who think the same way

We do, but maybe not. Maybe,

There is money running the show,

Behind the scenes, naturally.

Like lobbyists bearing gifts

To government officials, maybe

Bishops are concerned about

Wealthy parishioners. Who knew?
