Thank God It Wasn’t a Child

‘Thank God it wasn’t a child’

Seems to be able to be applied

To almost anything

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 –

Still, it eased a nation’s heartache

And made a nice accompaniment

For the tea and cake.
