Casañas suggests a new pledge

With all the immigration broo-ha ha, the re-writing of the National Anthem, and liberal judges graduating illiterate students, Domingo Ivan Casañas the author of Cuba, The Tarnish Pearl offers the following poem (prayer) in lieu of the Pledge of Allegiance, since that too is on the block to being banned in schools.

A POEM TO AMERICA...REGARDING OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

MY POEM TO AMERICA:
Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord's Prayer are not allowed in most Public schools anymore. This is my Pledge that I endorse:
This should be the new Pledge at school, where praying is against the rule.
For this great nation under God finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture the class recites, they scream “it violates the Bill of Rights”.
The left and the liberals don’t want God in Schools, how sad for them, they are just being fools.
Our kid’s hair can be purple, orange or green, that's no offense; they say it's a freedom scene.
The laws are specific, the laws are precise, but when it comes to Praying they are not very nice.
For if you decide to Pray in a public hall, someone will be offended with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate, God's name is prohibited in the State.
Kids are allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, and pierce their noses, tongues and cheeks.
I can’t seem to be able to pray, even though Abortions go on all day.
At schools we can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, and the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
They can learn about condoms, drugs and what’s bad, but isn’t it sad and a shame we can’t Pray to God?
Instead of teaching our kids right from wrong, they never get the values needed to be strong. They study witchcraft, vampires and communism too,
But the Ten Commandments just won’t do.
No word of God must reach any crowd, and if it does, it cannot be very loud.
It's getting scary here in the U.S. I must confess, where chaos reigns and the school's are a mess.
So, Lord, this silent prayer I make:
”Allow the U.S. to change its way, before it’s too late”.
Amen!

I think that the author lives someplace in Northern California in or around Lafayette, CA, which is west Walnut Creek.
