So it's a good story

After Luke 15:11-32

So it’s a good story
with a rather pointy point:
forgive the lost who are found
forgive the lost who were never lost
   in the first place, except within
The need was the save both
   From themselves
One knew it,
one didn’t
In the years that passed,
   one learned
   one didn’t
one embraced grace
one embraced works
Two prodigals:
take the quiz and
choose one.

The Oscar for best performance
by an actor isn’t
the ticket to heaven.
