A Guy Named Fred

There once was a guy named Fred
Who said that God was dead

He said it's so long
I know I'm not wrong
Cause God hasn't reared his head

Now Fred was a snappy guy
He was flashy
And caught the girls eye

He figured out angles
To make people dangle
And thought he could always get by

But there came an end to Freds' story
It wasn't gruesome
Or even gory

Yes Fred said God was dead
And we laughed through it all
Now everyone shakes their head
At the writing on the wall

It's short and very simple
Some say it is odd
It's written Fred is dead
The signature is God!

I was 10 yrs old and wrote this for a contest at school, I won a trip to the Los Angeles Zoo, all the animals were still babies..

The End
