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,
        Less disbelief.

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,
        And providence.

from the forthcoming book Prayers of 100 Animals A to Z, by William Cleary
