The New School Prayer

 Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule.

For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple or orange or  green,
That's no offense, it's the freedom  scene.

The law is specific, the law is  precise,
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious  vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at  all.

In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the State.

We're allowed to cuss & dress like  freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues &  cheeks.

They've outlawed guns; but FIRST the  Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me  liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the unwed daddy, our Senior King.

It's "inappropriate" to teach right  from  wrong,
We're taught that such "judgments" do  not  belong.

We can get our condoms, & birth  controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires & totem  poles.

But the Ten Commandments are not  allowed,
No Word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.

So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot,  My soul please take.
