The Politician’s Prayer


Our government, somehow elected,

Delusion be our game.
My god we’re dumb
But there’s work to be done
And blame to be deflected.
Delay us today our daily decisions.
And forgive us our empty promises,
As we forgive those who make empty
  promises in response.
And lead us not into innovation,
But deliver us from progress.
For we have the politicians,
With the power and the will
To speak bullshit
For ever and ever.

    This poem was a little disturbing. Thank God I’m an optimist. I always look at the half-full glass rather than half-empty. I agree the picture is perfect. Joyce
