Thank God for Dead Reverends

By Elton Camp It was when Fred Phelps was lying dead That the word like this was cruelly said It was written in bold red on a large sign And held at his funeral in a picket line Family looked at the reverend with despair As he lay so still in his coffin over there As they mourned, there could be no doubt From a distance they heard the angry shout “Others Phelps did judge and condemn So now we are so happy to be rid of him.” “He is experiencing the fate of a religious liar And is now screaming in agony in blazing fire.” “How could they be so cruel?” his family did say Forgetting they’d done others the very same way What will now become of Westboro Baptist Church Without their leader, they have been left in the lurch
