My School Prayer

Now I lay me down to learn
Which to read and which to burn
Pray the Lord my soul to turn
Over to the school board.

Free to worship as I please,
Long as it pleases the authorities.
Hear me praying on my knees
My School Prayer.

"Once again, boys and girls, I'll remind you that this activity
is not mandatory, and those of you who don't believe in a
Judeo-Christian God as defined by Congress should feel free to
sit quietly with your fingers in your ears like the atheistic
heathen you are. Agnostics may want to plug just one ear."

May my every sneeze be blessed.
May I pass my urine test.
May my mind be underest-
imated and ignored, Lord

Keep my classroom safe and clean.
Sanctify my M-16.
Every morning, eight-fifteen,
It's My School Prayer.

God bless California, Arizona,
North Dakota, Texas, Maine,
New Hampshire,
Ohio and New York, of course.

The forty-eight contiguous,
And the two ambiguous.
The greatest country God ever saved from the pagans.

And while we're at it, dear Lord, bless the Reagans.

God is good, and God is great.
So we'd hate to separate
Church and state or ourselves from pat-
riarchy and theocracy.

Peace on earth, Thy kingdom come
Into my curriculum.
Make my head a hollow drum.

Strike me dumb
Except to mumble
My School Prayer.

[The Foremen,"My School Prayer",
from the "What's Left?" album]
