A Piece of a Mind

Teach me what you learned in school

What is it your god teaches you

Why to you is this cool

And what equals two plus two


Show me all you know

Does this turn me into a cursed sinner

What are these insults you throw

And how do you eat your dinner


Let me ponder over all of it

And make sense of this

Why not just quit

And give up all your wit

Do not swat my questions down please


The one true religion

Who the enemy is

How to make the right decision

The answers to this quiz


Do not force this knowledge on me

You want to be a preacher

But to be your slave is a high fee

I know of a way that is cheaper

I'll be my own philosophy teacher
