A Poem by Neville Pettitt



Dear Lord

I have planned

Each second breath

And have since programmed

Each and every gasp pant and sigh

I have checked the integrity of my DNA

And forged an alibi



I will now

Show you hunger

I will now show you pain

I will now show you freedom

Time and time and time again



Shall I ever

 See you naked

Or exercise this tongue

Pray relieve me of this appetite

I beg thy will be done....…….Amen

Instead of finishing the prayer , we stop and , we read it again , and it leaves us in wonder( you have done it again! Put a Neville signature on the prayer)
