MY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
by Gene Minix
I went my first day of school
In what seems not that far away.
It was back in the Fifties
But it seems like just the other day.
I remember that day so well
And what the teacher had to say.
She read to us from the Bible
Then we bowed our heads to pray.
We watched them raise the flag.
How beautiful the red, white and blue.
We stood at the window and saluted it
And it felt good through and through.
We learned to read Alice and Jerry books.
Learned our numbers, too.
We learned about the Golden Rule,
What we could and shouldn't do.
The windows and doors stood open.
There was nothing to fear.
Those were the Good Old Days.
Don't you wish they were still here.
But how things have changed.
Our schools are all locked down.
Could it be because God isn't allowed in
And no Bible can be found?
