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, and now the Bible.  
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.  
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,  
And the ‘unwed daddy,’ is a senior teen.  
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,  
If chaos reigns, the school’s a mess.  
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:  
Should I get shot; My soul please take!
