The Prayer
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
AH God, for a man with heart, head, hand,
Like some of the simple great ones gone
For ever and ever by,
One still strong man in a blatant land,
Whatever they call him, what care I,        5
Aristocrat, democrat, autocrat—one
Who can rule, and dare not lie!
