You stood there
decrying it all
anti anything that would get your name in the paper.
when we looked behind the curtain
drew it back on your sins
we found you were not quite true.
stirring the pot
whispers of rumors in one ear
money in the hands of another….
With eyes wide open
all finally see
the truth of this matter
as we weep……
anti- everything that is moral and right.
When did it become the norm?
To sell votes for favors……
to sell salvation for dollars…..
to degrade children
allowing them to fall through the cracks
lost and alone
while their parents are terrorized?
When did time change so much?
That morals sit in the bin
taken out with the trash?
That freedoms fought so hard for
can be torched in a moment?
When did truth become a slippery slope?
When did mans lies become legitimate facts?
When did the values, the mores I remember
that they no longer can be found?
I weep for those times passed
mourning the loss of simpler times
when the world was not threatening to shatter.
