Poetry Corner: "Graduation Day"

The teachers were smiling, another job well done
'Cause flowers are for blooming in the last week of May.
The children smiled too, they knew that they had done it.
All of 'em knew that it was graduation day.

Papa said 'Mama, let's attend the celebration.'
And the preacher was there, cause they wanted him to pray.
All except for that lawyer, way back in the corner
Who said 'Let's take it to the judge, and see if it’s OK.'

News anchor with raised eyebrow, he gave us the story.
Said "I don't see why these Christians persist."
We even had a scientist look in his laboratory.
If God's not there, then He must not exist."

The Judge wore a scowl, along with his black robe
He said "I forbid you. In fact I insist.
The Constitution says be neutral, in matters of religion.
That means we slap you down, and support the athiests."

Graduation was over, but Papa was a thinking
And all of his friends, they were thinking too.
About Constitution Pollution, and reporter-distorters.
Yeah, Papa cleaned his gun, and wondered what to do.

What?!

Cleaning his gun huh? Good stuff Mark, I really like the subtlety. Too bad it isn't a Haiku though.
