by Glen Martin Fitch

One Higher Power,
understanding, kind,
all knowing, patient, wise,
forgiving, near, compassionate,
attentive to mankind.
more powerful than TV,
peanuts, beer
and sex.
From you I'll ask
but won't expect
that miracle,
(the little ones will do).
Just so I'll pray
you'll keep disasters checked,
for justice, vision,
peace and mercy, too.

Adore me,
keep me honest,
make me laugh, feel needed,
special, healed and whole.
I need your silent help
on my behalf
to live,
each day abstain,
rebuild my soul.
And what I am grateful for
you'll hear from me on hold,
while pumping gas,
and as I pee.
