A poem by Philip Appleman
      O Karma, Dharma, pudding and pie,
            gimme a break before I die:
            grant me wisdom, will, & wit,
            purity, probity, pluck, & grit.
        Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind,
     gimme great abs & a steel-trap mind,
  and forgive, Ye Gods, some humble advice
        these little blessings would suffice
          to beget an earthly paradise:
          make the bad people good
           and the good people nice;
  and before our world goes over the brink,
       teach the believers how to think.
