War Prayer
 by Mark Twain


O Lord our God, help us to tear their 
soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells;  
help us to cover the smiling fields 
with the pale forms of Patriot dead;  
help us drown the thunder of guns 
with shrieks of their wounded; 
help us wring the hearts of their 
unoffending widows with grief; ... 
Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives... 
In the spirit of Love, Amen
