I Thought I Saw an Atheist…

The Digital Cuttlefish wrote a lovely poem last month; here’s the first stanza:

I thought I saw an atheist, once, walking down the street.
I checked for horns, I checked for tail, I checked for cloven feet;
Began to tremble frightfully—my heart was in my throat—
Then sighed in happy recognition, for ‘twas but a goat.

He now has a sequel referencing the Rob Sherman/Monique Davis incident:

…I thought I saw an atheist, upon the witness stand
It couldn’t be! Not where I live! This is a Christian Land!
The Constitution guarantees my right to scream and shout;
As the Good Lord is my witness, I demanded “You! Get out!”

Good stuff!

    Pretty funny poems, though he seems to have a knack for messing up the meter in the last line.

    I thought I saw an atheist, upon the witness stand
    He was berated for his disbelief and had her in his hand
    Too bad he’s out of touch for his faux pas was much bigger
    His term was out of date and pretty much called her …

    I finally heard the video and he didn’t even get to talk! She got to spout off, but he didn’t! :mad: I would really love to tell her that I think her philosophy is dangerous to my children and future grandchildren!
