Thank God it wasn’t a Child

Thank God it wasn’t a child:

Seems to be able to be applied

To almost everything

To lessen

The impact

Of doom:

‘The votes are in, we have a new Prime Minister!’

‘Thank God it wasn’t a child!’ the public cried

For all the difference it will make –

But still, it eased a nation’s heartache.
