What About God? - Poem by Rosie Bourget

Their motor is,
"In God We Trust"
Their money says
"In God we trust"
What trust?

Who trusts whom?
Who trusts what?
God, did you hear that?
They stay in their room
Praying for whom!

And then
It's better to say
"In gun we trust"
Rather than
"In God We Trust"
This is just to say!

People believe in guns
More than they trust God
While pampering their gun
They pretend to worship God
Poor God
Lucky gun!

Their pledge of allegiance is,
"One nation under God"
Which God?
Oh my God!
What a masquerade!

Stop praying in vain
That's insane
When you use God's name in vain,
You don't go to heaven!

The Supreme Court as a damn fool
Needs to stop playing cool
By putting God back to school
In order to have safe schools
In a country full of fools
With no soul!

Topic(s) of this poem: safety, school, trust
