A Temporary Ceasefire

The ‘under God’ face-off is far from over

The battle over “under God”
has ceased for now you see
and all because the dad who sued
did not have custody.

It seems instead of ruling on
the merits of the case,
the Justices in Washington
found loopholes in the lace.

So even though God didn’t get
His rightful day in court,
He can for now still be esteemed
by students tall and short.

This war of words is far from done.
That phrase may yet be shot.
But until then acknowledge God
and pledge with all you’ve got.
