A Secret Little Prayer


Although I don't believe in God,
I always find that I,
Say a little secret prayer,
Before venturing into the sky!

Yes, every time I board a plane,
I offer up some words,
I don't believe anyone's there to listen,
And I don't believe they're heard.

But, as I clip on the safety belt,
And watch the cabin crew,
Showing us, what, if things go wrong,
Just what we have to do.

I offer up my secret little plea,
That if there's something there to care,
Then look after my fellow passengers and me,
And keep this bloody thing in the air!

Now I know that I'm a hypocrite,
I don't need it pointed out,
But I'm not as bad as those Godly men,
Who hate, and scream, and shout.

At those who won't do as they say,
Who refuse to accept their rules,
Who will not bend to life their way,
Who won't become suffering fools!
