Topic: Achoo (04/11/13)

For the sake of those who don’t believe
especially the atheist who’s sure to grieve
the next time you hear somebody sneeze
particularly if you’re one trying to please
simply remove God and say “bless you”
a perfect response to the common achoo.

If politically correct is what you want to be
next time you text, delete the “g” from “omg”
sing “Bless America” at a baseball game
and whatever you do, don’t say the “name”
yet it’s still ok to say god before damn-it
that doesn’t bother the majority one bit.

There’s still no bill passed at the present time
to erase God off the quarter, nickel or dime
but hey they got Him out of all the schools
not very smart but who am I to judge fools
and though it’s frowned upon you still may cry
“God help me” in fox holes or when ready to die.

A sad but true and needed commentary on the state of the Nation. You might have included another example or two and stretched it out a bit, but a good job none the less.

Sarcasm in verse, well done. As for foxholes, so many conversions come from foxholes makes one wonder if God created the need.

I like the attitude! Sarcasm works well. Would just have liked to read some more!

A fitting commentary on today's political correctness. Well written . . .
