    Our Leader which art in absentia
    Brash be thy name
    Thy monetarist utopia come
    Thy asset sales be done
    On Waitangi as it is in Wellington

    Give us this day our daily bullshit
    And forgive us our fux pas’es
    As we sometimes forgive (but usually stab each other in the back)
    For thine is the Reserve Bank
    The Dollar and the Exchange Rate
    For ever and ever beyond the ken of mortal Kiwis

    Amen.
