Thanksgiving Prayer

A Thanksgiving Prayer
by Alexis C Jolly

(Rhythmically, it's modeled off the Christian "Lord's Prayer," primarily out of laziness, but please modify it to fit your own religious, spiritual, skeptical, or atheistic beliefs.)

Our Universe, which is everywhere:

Man, we are really, really small compared to you.

I hope we learn to stop killing each other and live in peace,

because that would be awesome.

We're so lucky to have this food, and each other,

even though we've all acted like real jerks before--to strangers and, even more inexplicably, to each other.

But I hope we learn to act less crappy

and instead learn to appreciate the gifts and the love that surround us, each and every day.

Dig in.
