A Psalm for 2013

“Mr. Obama is my shepherd,
And I am in want;
He maketh me to lie down on park benches,
He leadeth me beside still factories,
He disturbeth my soul.
He leadeth me in paths of destitution for his party’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of the
I anticipate no recovery, for he is with me;
His policies, his diplomacies, they frighten me;
He prepareth a reduction in my income,
And in the presence of mine enemies
He anointeth my small income with taxes.
My expenses runneth over, –
Surely, unemployment, want, and poverty shall follow me all
the days of my life
And I shall dwell in a mortgaged home forever.”

Originally written as a “1938 Psalm,” we swapped “Mr. Roosevelt” with “Mr. Obama” to create a Psalm for our time — not surprisingly, it fits almost perfectly.
