AN ATHEIST'S PRAYER
So she looked at the baby and away out the manger door
He dreamed gravity all day and gravity while in bed
But it was the collision of an apple upon his head
That made him cry, I wasn’t expecting that
In Thomas Farriner’s bakery with all his scones and bread
After it destroyed the city and left countless thousands dead
The baker lamented, I wasn’t expecting that.
They clambered into the lifeboats, or swam, it was too deep to walk
And if the creator had made big icebergs that could talk
The cry would have been, I wasn’t expecting that.
Osama bin Laden was their leader and deputy to invincible Allah
To exclaim, Allah, I wasn’t expecting that.
