Speaking of prayer
Since I am on a prayer kick, and what is prayer other than conversations with God via the medium of your own soul, I give you another, sort of ad-libbed on the spot.
Never let my cerebral head
overtake my bleeding heart
in this earthly race.
Let them both inform
my every action in perfect balance,
a perfect moderation.
Let nothing I do serve anything
but your will through the cloudy
prism of the common good, of human love.
