Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Family Survival in the American Jungle, Steve Farrar, 1991, Multnomah Press, p. 63

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Now I lay me down to sleepI pray my Cuisinart to keepI pray my stocks are on the riseAnd that my analyst is wise.

That all the wine I sip is whiteAnd that my hot tub's watertightThat racquetball won't get too toughThat all my sushi's fresh enough.

I pray my cordless phone still worksThat my career won't lose its perksMy microwave won't radiateMy condo won't depreciate.

I pray my health club doesn't closeAnd that my money market growsIf I go broke before I wakeI pray my Volvo they won't take.
