Prayers for New Year
In lifeís deceitfully meandering and wicked ways|
Iíll keep God as my guardian angel
but succumb to Satanís overtures.
Iíll call for Godís support in many ways
Praying piously to protect,
providing me with peace and prosperity,
but follow the ways of the wicked
for they appear to have all the fun
and the finer things of life.
I am done just breaking the bread
and quenching my thirst with water plain,
I want to taste caviar and champagne.
Just as a spark sets the woods on fire
I hope a glint to ignite my drab life.
As the gold-digging evil is important
to the world-order stirring up
such mayhem as pleases the devilÖ
for the cocky rules the roost,
to the victor belong the spoils.
O Lord, in this decadent world weíre living
I have started feeling kind of wicked,
If you see me as a victim
will you be a bit more forgiving, I pray?
