NEW SCHOOL PRAYER

Written By a 15 year old high school student

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, 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 "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
