'Twas the Night Before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas when all through the earth
Not a teacher was telling
Of Jesus' birth

Parents send their little ones off with great care.
Believing that truth would be taught to them there.

The children settle in at desks in neat rows
While seeds of doubt are placed right under their nose.

The teachers in charge and the principal with a nod
Agree to stop saying "One Nation Under God".

When out in the courtrooms there arose such a clatter
The parents sprang up seeking change in the matter.

The judge supported the ACLU stand
Separation of Church and State,
The law of the land.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
The parents ignore it, and children continue attending here.

So with a wink of the eye and twist of the head
Our schools go on proclaiming
"God is dead."
