The Lord's prayer for our times (apologies to anyone here who is offended
O Thou Great Chief of Staff,
Supreme in the Chain of Command,
Keep us on top
We fight for you, we kill for you,
From bombers (as it were) in heaven.
Give us a budget
Commensurate with our needs.
And forgive us our overkill
As we forgive the Chilean Junta.
Lead us not into land wars,
And deliver us from Senate hearings.
For if yours is the Kingdom
Ours is the (air) power
And also the glory.
Unless Russia drops one first.
From Robert Brown's "Hereticus" book.
