The Lloyd's Prayer

Reservoir Gods

A few of these are doing the rounds, so we thought we'd quickly make up our own version.

The Lloyd's Prayer

Our Lloyd,
Who art in Broad Street,
Blankfein be thy name.

Bonus time has come,
Taxpayers have been done,
In America as they have in Europe.

Give us this day our $100m trading gain,
And forgive us our bailouts,
As we forgave those who shorted our stock

And lead us not into conflicts of interest,
But deliver us from clueless lawmakers.

For thine is a bank holding company,
With strong balance sheet and Warren Buffett

For partners and stockholders,
Getting richer and richer
