As crooked as a politician

A Narcissist's Prayer
with a nod to The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost
Our Father—
He and I are real close

who art in heaven—
I've got a free pass to get in

hallowed be thy Name—
along with my own

thy kingdom come—
mine's already here

thy will be done—
as shall my will

on earth—
I'm in my element

as it is in heaven—
I live in my own heaven

give us this day—
and yesterday and tomorrow

our daily bread—
I just love the color of "bread"

and forgive us—
Who? Me? For what?

our trespasses—
not me

as we forgive those—
that sounds more like it

who trespass against us—
they tried, they failed, they're pathetic

and lead us not into temptation—
this part was put in for everybody else

but deliver us from evil—
which means, deliver them from themselves

for thine is the kingdom—
Hey!? What about me?

and the power—
so I can do what I want

and the glory—
I was born for it

for ever and ever—
yes, yes, definitely me, me, me forever

this prayer was probably written for me...
