Bless this house, O Lord, we pray.
Make it safe by night and day.

Bless our humble vestibule,
Bless the TV, bless the pool.

Bless our silly little notions.
Bless our week’s supply of Trojans.

Bless, oh bless the internet.
Bless our liquor cabinet.

Bless our kitchen, for it features
Places where we roast Thy creatures,

Bake them, broil them, nuke them, fry them.
Blessed Lord, please sanctify them

While we’re scarfing down their wings,
livers, legs, and other things

Breasts and tongues and blood galore,
Bless them, Lord, forevermore.

Bless the toilets where we sit,
Bless the urine, bless the ___.

Bless our fish and parakeet.
Bless our dog, who fouls the street.

Bless our dull routine behavior.
Bless our envy of our neighbor.

Bless this house, O Lord, we pray.
Make it safe by night and day.

Bless the children, bless the wife.
Bless our empty mundane life.
