Our Constitution whom we hearken,
hallowed be thy words.
We, the people come, our goodness will be done,
on earth as it is in this dear land of liberty.
Give us this day our daily grace.
And forgive our debts of not listening,
as we forgive those who listen to the enemy within.
Lead us not into Trumpisms, and
deliver us from an maniacal ego and his grandiose follies,
now and forever.

Amen

Inspired by Mattew 6:9-13
