An Atheist's Prayer

So it’s down to God
that we have Trump:
perhaps He went
and got the hump,
thought we deserved
the monstrous lump
that heads the American nation.

Perhaps He’s right,
perhaps we strayed,
ate the fruit
and so betrayed
the perfect world
that He once made,
the immaculate conception.

Atheistic -
I might be;
agnostic -
I’d agree,
but if You’re up there,
hear my plea -

implement his resignation.
