Now I Sit Me Down

This poem is written by a kid somewhere in Boston. I think he has this strange idea of the government banning the name of God being mentioned in school or even the possession of the Holy Bible or praying along the hallway. This might sound naive at first, but as we look to our society today, this in fact is not far from happening any time from now. Where are you going to stand?

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.

Anytime my head I bow
Becomes a federal matter now.
The law is specific; the law is precise.
Praying out loud is no longer nice.
Praying aloud in a public hall
Upsets those who believe in nothing at all.

In silence alone we can meditate
and if God should get the credit--great!
They are bringing their guns,
I don't dare bring my Bible,
To do so might make me liable.
So, now Oh Lord, this plea I make;
Should I be shot in school, My soul please take.
