"A Liturgy For Cleaning Your Dog's Fur Off Furniture"

O Holy Trinity,

Even though I try to regularly brush

My beloved dog's fur,

And thus de-shed him,

Still, some of his fur ends up

On the furniture.

What a fitting illustration of how

No matter how hard I try,

My works ultimately come to nothing.

I may do my best

To not mess things up,

And yet I cannot help it.

And yet, O God,

You still clean up after me

Time after time,

Just as I do for my dog.

Thank you for always being there for me.
