Our Progress

Our progress that thou art on this earth,
Hallowed be thy science,
Thy economic growth cometh,
May thy technology govern
In the west like in the east.
Giveth us this day our Gross Domestic Product,
And forgiveth us our financial crisis,
Like we forgive our critics.
Do not lead us towards temperance,
But deliver us from reason,
Because thine is the money and the might
And the global dominion in eternity,
                                      Amen!
By Lislott Pfaff, from the volume "Deine Technik geschehe... [May your technology be...]", Stories and poems, 1990, ISBN 3-907 447-01-8
