GNIGHT PRAYER OF A GNAT
A gnat like me should gnot be singing psalms,
Or say a word,
It takes a swarm of gnats just to be seen,
Much less be heard.
Gno God will gnotice prayers from just one gnat:
The thought's absurd.
So I'll give up what gnormal prayers I'd say,
Life is too brief,
In solidarity with gnats worldwide
I'll state my grief:
Please God, gnats gneed more hope,
We can't believe we're on our way gnowhere,
It makes gno sense.
We're tiny, yet too gnoble to despair,
We're gnot that dense:
So every gnight we give ourselves to prayer,
