The New School Prayer

Isn't It Funny?

Written by a teen in Arizona 

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 alound 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 "inappropraite" to teach right from wrong

We're taught that sure "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,

Old rules like that offend the 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!
