409. Our Changing World
Our world is quickly changing, that is plain for all to see,
Many say that it is for the worst, and I must myself agree.
What has happened to our honor, have we lost all of our pride ?
We no longer care about our misdeeds, or whether we have lied.
It almost seems impossible to pry from our leaders the truth,
What kind of life lesson is this deception teaching to our youth ?
To insure their success they are destroying pride in our culture,
They hover over our sinking morality like the circling of a vulture !
From the top of the highest mountains, to the rolling desert sand,
There is a deadly cancer that is spreading throughout every land,
Many have forgotten about compassion, are now lost in their cause,
Moving forward without reason, refusing to stop, or even pause.
We sit in front of our multi - media, on our faces a look of sheer disbelief,
Watch images flashing by of mothers, fathers, and children in their grief,
And just when you think you have seen the most deplorable of act,
A horror is perpetrated, morphing from unbelievable fiction into fact.
I often think that this ever changing world is becoming somewhat odd,
And wonder how it's many bitter inhabitants can still believe in a God,
Some speak of a great outside force that will one day purge us of our sin,
However, I firmly believe that we will soon destroy ourselves from within.
