A pensioner's prayer at Christmas

Our Prime Minister who art in Downing Street,
Gordon Brown be thy name.
Thy kingdom hath come,
its here today but not in heaven.
Give us this day a fair pension for all,
and forgive us for getting old,
so we can forgive you and your ministers.
Lead us not into means testing and poverty,
but deliver us from frustration and despair.
For thou art the policy maker,
Not forever and ever but until the next election

With apologise to the gospels of Mathew and Luke
