The Prayer of the Little Ducks

Sometimes my prayers are a lot like this:

THE PRAYER OF THE LITTLE DUCKS


Dear God,
give us a flood of water.
Let it rain tomorrow and always.
Give us plenty of little slugs
and other luscious things to eat.
Protect all folk who quack
and everyone who knows how to swim.
Amen.

~ Carmen De Gasztold ~
