I wrote this a few years ago with a collection of light verse that was mercifully never published. This little item, though, I thought might deserve resurrection, along with a few others I’ll sprinkle in from time to time like those tiny M&M’s they make for cookies. If my wits ever do fail me, everyone will know exactly why…
The Writer’s Prayer
Now I sit me down to write.
I pray the Lord my wit be bright.
If I should write aught that is fake,
I pray the Lord my wit to take.
