A Psalm of Sarah

By Becky Garrison

 

1 The atheist is my enemy, he knows nothing.

 

2 I make him lie down in gray prisons,
I beat him till he gives in,

 

3 I kick in his soul.
I whip him toward the right paths
for Jesus' name's sake.

 

4 Even though liberals deny
the existence of my Lord and Savior
I will fear no evil,
for God supports me so;
his rod and his staff,
will punish them.

 

5 God ordained a table before me

in the presence of these infidels.

I beat his head with iron;

his blood overflows.

 

6 Surely God's judgment and love will follow

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house that is White

forever.
