Creed

The Geritol Follies Creed

Give me a mind that is not bored
That does not whimper, whine or
sigh:

Don’t let me worry over much
About the fussy thing called “I”
Give me some sense of humour,
Lord:
Give me the grace to see a joke:
To get some happiness from life
And pass it on to other folk.

A prayer found in Chester Cathedral England
