Prayer for Pizza Night

Lord, please forgive me, for I have sinned.

I have indulged in a pleasure I thought I had shunned.

Chemicals coursed through my bloodstream,

Clicked upon entry into my brain, detonated like

Like red and green fireworks on a black

Fourth of July sky.

I told myself I’d only take one.

But I didn’t.

I took four.

That’s right, Lord.
