The New School Prayer


Our New School Prayer
(Author Unknown)

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 freedom scene.
That law is specific, that 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 mediate,
God’s name is prohibit 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 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 “judgements” 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 much 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, Lord, please take.
