Arrived in my email box via my wife, via a knitters "flame" email list.
Bush is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh logs to be cut down in national forests.
He leadeth trucks into the still wilderness.
He restoreth my fears.
He leadeth me in the paths of international
Disgrace for his ego's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of pollution
And war, I will find no exit, for thou art in office.
Thy tax cuts for the rich and thy media control,
they discomfort me.
Thou preparest an agenda of deception in the
Presence of thy religion.
Thou anointest my head with foreign oil.
My health insurance runneth out.
Surely megalomania and false patriotism shall
follow me all the days of thy term.
And my jobless children shall dwell in my basement
Note: Former Democratic Party Congressional candidate Andrew Kaza saw it first.
Bonus time: here's an earlier political reworking of the Lord's Prayer, perhaps even angrier and more cynical... final verse:
Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me as long as I donate to the Party.
And In Bush’s house forever more
My dwelling place shall be, as long as I keep giving until it hurts.
