    James Brown‘s prayer:

    “Our Obama who art in office,
    One term be thy fame.
    Your chance had come,
    but little was done,
    your change it was a lemon.
    Give us this day our welfare bread,
    and never be in foreign debt,
    as we have defaulted our own debtors.
    And lead us not to another Nation,
    but deliver us from China.”
