The Official Government Prayer

Funny story written by George Fripley

Wednesday, 4 November 2009

It is time to remember Cardinal Slumberus Drone, born today in 1859.

Cardinal Drone did not make a large contribution to the evolution of government, as he spent most his time in the House of Lords soundly asleep and unaware of the machinations occuring around him.

He did, however, wake up long enough to realise what was going on around him and took time to write the official government prayer.

This 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 bureaucrats,
With the power, and the will
To infuriate
For ever and ever.
