I humbly urge all people
to pray for George W. Bush
May this poor man find greater wisdom
instead of mouthing rhetorical mush
May You awaken his conscience
& give him a progressive swoosh
May You blast away his ignorance
& provide him with a moral push
May the thousands he has orphaned find forgiveness
rather than joining a suicidal putsch
Most of all, Dear Lord,
I pray this soul will stop using Your Name in vain
cuz when hatred or greed are veiled as piety
it amounts ta a spiritual am-
||This guy is poisoned: anytime hatred enters our hearts, it poisons us.
||Doesn't Bush need all of the prayers he can get?
||This isn't a prayer – it's a satire. And I find it hard to pray for a guy who has murdered so many.
||That's all the more reason to pray for him . . .
||Bush represents the blind self-righteousness that's in all of us.
If you look closely enough, you can find the same foolish arrogance within your own heart.
||(miffed) Ah, do I need you to tell me what's in my own heart?
