A prayer for the new PM
Lord, may we enjoy this honeymoon.
Lord, give us some time
To find pleasure in our new PM,
His charm, his wit, his family,
His energy, his hair, his all-around handsomeness.
May we enjoy his smile that betrays
His youthful optimism, his lack of cynicism.
Give us some time to bask in the radiance
Of his hopefulness, his sincerity
In believing that in ethnic diversity
There is strength, in gender equality
There is principle, in giving refuge to those in need
There is justice, and in acknowledging the traditions
Of our indigenous forbearers there is necessity.
Let us enjoy this moment, without doubt or questioning
Because, as he said quizzically, it’s 2015.
So let us enjoy Lord
Until the next session of Parliament, at least.
