A Ploughman`s Prayer

Seen by an old plough while out in the country yesterday:

The Ploughman`s Prayer

The King he governs all

The Parson prays for all

The Lawyer pleads for all

The Ploughman pay for all

And feed all.

Sorry, typos in my last post, so I deleted it.
What I meant to ask was, is that a prayer? Isn't a prayer addressed to God? That seems more like a list of facts, or a political statement. Or is it meant to be a grumble to God about the unfairness of life?

I wondered that when I read it, so thought I`d print it on my blog and see what others thought.
It`s exactly how it was engraved on the plinth which had the old plough on in a village, with details on the other side of its origins (the plough, not the prayer)
