A new, sad day

The New Normal

 

When did outrageous become normal?

When did bizarre become routine?

When did vigilant become blind?

When did enlightened become willful ignorance?

When did rude and crude become an idol?

When did failure become an admired quality?

When did wondering become obsolete?

When did greed become a virtue?

When did loud become wise?

When did unqualified become refreshing?

When did settled become chaos?

Yeah, that's obviously the truth, in hindsight; thanks, Penny
