Tis hot and humid outdoors 90 plus degrees
Sad I sweat windows down can't afford fix A/C
Transfer dollars bank to bank require usage ATM
Bank lobby men 'end of life' converse morbid Amen
Survival overheard gruesome details kept lunch down
Afternoon agenda shop closest supermarket hometown
Slowly walk pushing basket up and down crowded aisles
Realization community frowners missing beautiful smiles
Six self-checkout machines non-stop spurt directions
Quick irritant customers chastise speak loud objections
Groceries onboard vehicle low mileage popular model SUV
Drive home low on gas unknown whereabouts station attendee
Grocery purchases unpacked safe cupboards some fridge stored
Quiet time access PC mailroom partake personal beverage reward
Surprise! Surprise! Excessive amount mail awaits thou view
Leave bulk of laughable contents another day posts in review.
Fun choice write 'bout laughable afternoon excursion
Experimental follower count reader like versus aversion
Struggle feel abundance rejection writers certain face
Older folk sad apparent limitation amidst beloved human race.

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!
A 15-year old teen wrote the above prayer IMO quite Awesome.
In the US The Lord's Prayer is not allowed in most Public schools.
The student received an A+ for this entry. Bravo!!
