And what kind of lesson does it teach others? The old "There but for the grace.... go I?"
Here's what I think really happens:
Whose Grace Is It, Anyway?
“There but for the grace of God go I,”
Remarks the true believer
Thinking he’s been spared a similar fate—
A veritable religious overachiever.
But if there is a god and he does intervene
Then what of the pious left forlorn?
Abandoned so others can quip their quip?
O now, how he wishes he was never re-born.
