Show and Tell

The teacher said to her class,
“For next Friday’s Show-and-Tell,
Bring something from your heritage
That depicts your faith as well.”

“This is my prayer rug,”
Said the little Muslim boy.
“I kneel on it when I pray
So it isn’t just a toy.”

“This is the Star of David,
It protects our crops and cattle,”
Said the little Jewish boy,
“It leads us into battle.”

Then the little Catholic girl
Held up a string of beads.
“We count on the rosary
When we tell God our needs.”

The sweet Southern Baptist girl
Brought in a cooking pot.
“We call this a covered dish,
Our church uses it a lot!”
