Beatitudes for the 21st Century

by Huw Luscombe : Cairns, Australia

Blessed are the poor in body fat
      For theirs is the world of fashion
Blessed are those who sell
      For their friends will all become clients
Blessed are the tolerant
      For they shall inherit mediocrity
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for the environment
      For they shall be patronised
Blessed are open-minded
      For they may well know what might have been
Blessed are the politically correct
      For they shall see the equality of death.
Blessed are the Humanitarian Activists
      For they shall be the children of media manipulation
Blessed are those who can publicise their persecution and show how others have violated their Human Rights
      For theirs is the promise of government funding.
