The parable of the 10 virgins

Matthew 25:1-13

The bridegroom entrusted the lamps to the virgins
“After all,” he reasoned, “they ain’t brain surgeons.”
I guess he was right,
Because when he brought back his bride that night
The light along the doorway wasn’t all that bright.

During the feast, he answered the door,
And there was the rest of the crew back
from the store.
They said, “Come on let us in, Marty!”
He replied,

“Sorry, you have to light
for the right
to party!”
