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?
