Many of you out there may be unaware that there is a secret politician’s prayer that is said, usually very quietly on most days when Parliament is sitting by the Coalition.
I understand it is said out loud by the the opposition leader at the beginning of every Shadow Cabinet meeting, and there is a rumour that it has spread to conservative parties across the world.
The Conservative's Prayer
Our government, when elected
Delusion be our game.
My god we’re dumb
But there’s work to be done
And blame to be deflected.
Delay us today our daily decisions.
And forgive us our empty promises,
As we forgive those who make empty promises in response.
And lead us not into innovation,
But deliver us from progress.
For we have the politicians,
With the power, and the will
To speak drivel
For ever and ever.
