A Wink and a Prayer

Lead me not into temptation,

Refrain from encouraging my slide

Into passages of wild abandon

With a subtle wink and nod.

Hold me to much higher standards

Than those to which you subscribe

Hypocrisy is all the rage, my dear

Executive orders well describe.

Sauce for the goose, gold for the gander

Don’t let them catch you weeping

Heads we lose; tails we’ve lost

Prayers are all past keeping.
