A Modern Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who shall be termed party of
the first part, whose place of business
is in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom, pursuant to terms and
conditions, come.
Thy will, duly uncontested, be done on
earth, inasfar as existing statutes
permit, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this Thirty-first day of
December, 2000, our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts, notwithstanding
claims, liens and legal costs, as we,
who shall be termed party of the second
part, forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, i.e.
sin, corruption, greed, gluttony, etc.,
but deliver us from evil, the nature of
which shall be determined by the court.
For thine is the Kingdom, and the Power,
and, pending appeal, the Glory forever.
