The Prayer of the Sane

Saturday, May 24, 2008

And now, higher power,
Let us not give in to our base instincts,
Our drive to instant pleasure,
The stimulation of our senses.

Let us instead strive to understand,
Our difference from the beasts around us.
That we know to delay gratification,
Only serves to magnify it.

Dark thoughts of insanity sometimes invade,
But we banish them quickly.
Let they not linger too long
In the unwary idler’s mind.

Amen.
