John Lennon’s
Working class hero: Amended, apologies to the original
As soon as you’re born, they make you feel small
By giving you little information and pretending that’s all
Til the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A good Christian man is something to be ?
A  one sided perspective is something for me ?
They hurt you at home and they hit you in Church
They despise what’s clever and they mock what they think different
Til you’re so fucking crazy you can only follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
An enlightened atheist is something to be
When they’ve tortured & scared you for 20 odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function you’re are so full of fear
A modern civilized person is something to be
A freethinking hero is something to be
Keep you doped with religion; it’s  myth and tv
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I see
But read Dennis McKinsey then you will see
But read Joseph Wheless then you will see
There’s room up in heaven, they are telling you still
But first you must learn to lie as you smile
If you want to be like the folks in the church.
But when you’ve read Richard Dawkins then you will see
But when you’ve read Robert Price then you will see
If you want to be a hero then just read John Loftus.

[ whose fault was it that I didn't  ask everyones opinion instead of assuming? Whose fault that I didn't ask for freethought books? Probably mostly mine ? ]
