On reading a news report that combative writer Gore Vidal had died....

I read that Gore Vidal has died,
he might be heading your way,
so just in case God, brace yourself,
for he'll still have lots to say.

He liked a debate, to disagree,
to get things off his chest,
a sharpish tongue and rapier wit,
in peace unlikely to rest.

For in amongst his many quotes,
some deep, some funny, some rude,
he suggested get rid of religion
for religion will do you no good. 

Gore v God and God v Gore,
the ultimate debate,
so just in case God, brace yourself,
he might soon be at the gate.
