New School Prayer

Received this in an email.  I do not know the author, but he/she did a great job of reflecting today's society.
For all you people who are advocates of the let's just love each other and act like nothing is seriously
wrong with this world, read this one carefully.  It might just wake you up to reality.

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, 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!
