O Come, Thou Key of David

I carry keys on my key ring which open doors I no longer need to open.  The master church key is really five keys, and still I cannot open every door.  Strangely, every one with any assortment of church keys can open my office door.  From whence security?

Where is the key
To this particular door?
Mary and Joseph stayed
In the stable out back
Of the inn.
No key necessary,
Only the security of those who watched:
A Star
Wise folk.
Where is the key
On the seeming endless key ring
We all carry
In our pockets?
Where is the key
To this particular door?
A baby born,
No key necessary
In fact
No lock whatsoever
Open to all.
