If I Had A Wish...
If I had a wish, oh, yes – it would be,
That God grant me this miracle for – just a
few – to see,
For those who sit in their office, standing for
To defend our values – they are not willing.
The Bible, The Constitution, The Bill of Rights
For none of these things, they are willing to
And, so, here’s my wish, my wish just for you
A daily reminder – I wish, God would do!
For those destroying our values, oh, let -
them only - see,
How of our foundations - they’ve made a mockery!

The words of our Constitution – on a new type of
So worthless, so porous – once destroyed – gone
So, grant me this wish, God – that these persons

“Separation of Church and State” – in no
founding documents can this be found!
And if you want to know, why we’ve lost so much
Look not in the First Amendment, nor in the Bill

for it was in that fight!
Thomas Jefferson, yes, he coined the phrase –
“separation of church and state”
For his letter to Danbury, see Reynolds vs.
United States, back in 1878,
But his words were then twisted, made to mean
