New School Prayer


Since the Pledge of Allegiance and the Lord’s Prayer are not allowed in most public schools anymore because the word “God” is mentioned, a kid in Arizona wrote the following:

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, orange or green
That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene
The law is specific, the law is precise
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice

mom-praying1For 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 and dress like freaks
And pierce our noses, tongues and 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 and birth controls
Study witchcraft, vampires and 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

Amen
