no 23 : alternative lord's prayer

one piece i found whilst looking back over the last few months is a wonderful juxtaposition of the lord's prayer with an earthly experience of parenthood (by steve taylor).

Our Father, who is in heaven
working so hard I never see him

Hallowed by your name
and so distant I never see your emotions

Your kingdom come, Your will be done
with a strap, when I broke the rules

Give us this day our daily bread
But you did bring home a pay packet

As we forgive those who sin against us
And drunk it with your mates at the pub

For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory
After all, you’re the head of this house and you’ll do what you damn well like
