A New USA School Prayer
Supposedly written by a Teen in Baghdad, Arizona, USA
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.
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 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!
