Out of the Mouths of Babes (poem by me)

Teachers aren’t talking about Jesus,
The kids choir is singing about Him,
But teachers aren’t talking about Him,
Nope, never shall they praise His Name.

Schools aren’t celebrating Jesus,
It’s just a winter party,
Nothing to do with Christmas,
Nope, never shall they speak of the babe.

Professors aren’t teaching the Bible,
It’s just a piece of literature,
Not as the Word of God,
Nope, never shall they teach it as truth.

Preschoolers aren’t taught to bless food,
Yet they freely blurt His Name out,
And if those little ones did not,
The rocks would inevitably cry out.

“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” —Luke 19:40

*I’m not a really political person, and this poem is not really about politics. I do enjoy making commentary based on my observations of society—especially within the context of religion. This poem (I hope) communicates the passion that resides in a society of Christians to express their love for Christ while systems are in place to limit their ability to freely express that passion. If we all failed to call out His Name, nature would still testify of its Maker (Psalm 19:1-6). Yet, there is still hope in the open honesty of small children for God has ordained praise from the lips of children (Matthew 21:16). I hope you enjoyed it. Have a blessed day!
