In God We Trust?

 

In God We Trust

 

By Elton Camp

 

Pious slogans some want to promote

Like the one found on coin and note

 

As if such sentiment it’s fine to dictate

By what is supposed to be a secular state

 

At such a thing we should be astounded

In a country on religious freedom founded

 

“What does it matter!” some will shout

Then righteous words begin to spout

 

Ignorantly and presumptuously they dare

To think that all, their views should share

 

With such anger their faces would turn red

If, “In Allah We Trust” is what it said

 

Agnostics and atheists are both citizens too

Besides, that slogan is so patently untrue

 

For its economic advantage the public seeks

Not looking for what divine wisdom speaks

 

“In greed we trust,” the motto should be saying

Rather than to pretend that God they’re obeying

A truly objectionable motto.
