Would you pray to me?

I’m no god
but if you’d pray to me
I’d grant you all your wishes


they benefit others as much as you
they are meaningful in the long run
their ecological footprint is small
they are backed by either science or religion
they cause no harm

I’d grant you all your wishes
Though I’m no god
tell me what you pray for

Today’s prompt on napowrimo.net was to write about multiple things happening at once. I’ve always been puzzled what happens when people pray for opposite things at the same time – especially when they pray to the same god. Who wins?

Why don’t you walk with me and my friend Jenny through Paris,  whilst you ponder on that? She’s written a wonderful poem about finally getting something she’d never got before. Her poem is called Abandoned perspective, and it’s a lot better than my introduction of it. It features tired legs and Picasso.
