The New School Prayer

This week's article is not original with us. We do not know who the author is, but are in agreement with its spirit and content. Psalm 33:12 "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord"

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 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.
