Our Daily Bread

     With human nature being what it is…. Always craving more, more, more, even our prayers are not exempt! Hope you enjoy this.

Our Daily Bread

 Oh, give to us,

our daily bread,

of which, we will partake.

 And, if it’s not, too much to ask,

some meat for us,

and a sandwich, we will make.

 

Or perhaps, a bowl of soup,

in which to dunk,

the bread.

 Or maybe, meat and soup combine,

and we’ll have,

some stew, instead.

 

For, you know,

that we are never,

satisfied, with what we have.

 And if we could,

we’d dine upon,

the flesh of the golden calf.
