Never desecrate a Bible

Don’t let a Torah touch the floor.

Burn a Koran and you’re liable

To touch off a civil war.

Every sentence, word and comma

In every sacred text is true

Don’t dare doodle on your Kama

Sutra, or your Popol-vuh.

Never mutilate or spindle

Anybody’s holy book

Don’t delete them from your Kindle,

Or your hard drive or your Nook.

The words of God roll down like thunder

From heaven in the Google Cloud

Our minds are filled with awe and wonder

Our hands are clasped, our heads are bowed.

Ever since the day He spoke them

Men and women of good will

Find it handy to invoke them

When they arm themselves to kill.
