Give Us This Day

Give us this day our daily bread,
with a cup of coffee hurry us out the door,
steer us clear of traffic back ups,
deliver us from road rage and speed limits,
absolve our transgressions as
we compete to reach the front of the queue,
shelter us with annuities
and guide us sanely through the red tape,
protect us from downsizing
and bores, postpone that moment of clarity
when mortality is confronted,
turn a deaf ear as we whine and backstab,
and if we cannot forget our ex,
help us to forgive them when we remember
how they failed to appreciate,
then having seen us safely back home again,
grant a final wish for tired feet,
there in the recliner with a glass of chablis,
give us this night our cable TV.
