    Prayer at the End of a Rope

    Dear Lord, observe this bended knee,
    This visage meek and humble,
    And heed this confidential plea,
    Voiced in a reverent mumble.

    I ask no miracles or stunts,
    No heavenly radiogram;
    I only beg for once, just once,
    To not be in a jam.

    One little moment thy servant craves
    Of being his own master;
    One placid vale between the waves
    Of duty and disaster.

    Oh, when the postman's whistle shrills,
    Just once, Lord, let me grin;
    Let me have settled last month's bills
    Before this month's come in.

    Let me not bite more off the cob
    Than I have teeth to chew;
    Please let me finish just one job
    Before the next is due.

    Consider, too, my social life,
    Sporadic though it be;
    Why is it only mental strife
    That pleasure brings to me?

    For months, when people entertain,
    Me they do not invite;
    Then suddenly invitations rain,
    All for the self-same night.

    R.S.V.P.'s I pray thee send
    Alone and not in bunches,
    Or teach me I cannot attend
    Two dinners or two lunches.

    Let me my hostess not insult,
    Not call her diamonds topaz;
    Else harden me to the result
    Of my fantastic faux pas.

    One little lull, Lord, that's my plea,
    Then loose the storm again;
    Just once, this once, I beg to be
    Not in a jam. Amen.
