Praying For Less



Another quaint conversation
with Les C. Moore


Boy, I tell you,
people who say they don’t want more problems,
sure got a funny way of praying
They always be asking the Lord
for more of this and that
Get another pay raise,
and another job title feather
on their boss straw hat
More work responsibility equals more stress
Ain’t nobody ever sat ‘em down
and told ‘em that yet
My goodness,
and they wonder why
they be always drinking that 
bitter black coffee of regret
They need to be praying for less ...
Less company soirees,
makes for less gossip to attend to
Less social media frenemies
to micro critique everything you do
Less expensive personal hobbies,
that prompts your spouse to spend more
Less time spent in the man cave,
and you might see the shooting star dreams you missed before
Praying for less, my dear lost friend,
will require you to be more vigilant
The more you can stifle complaints,
the less your stress will be mounting
Can Les see more of that, please!

So very true Freddie. Besides when every one is asking for either the same thing or things in opposition to the next how can everyone's prayers all be granted - I ask myself - so the answer lies with ourselves and we most people have the responsibility of fixing their own problems...Maria
