“Return with Me, If You Will, To...”

Return with me, if you will, to the good old days

When man was compassionate towards his fellow man

When caring was on the upswing; not like now,

When it’s dog eat dog, and you’re on your own is the creed

Long ago, knowledge wasn’t mocked as something

Only snobby liberals were guided by

Whatever happened to our sense that education,

Both of ourselves, and our young people,

Was the key for a bright future?

Somewhere or somehow along the way

We the people averted our eyes; looked to something new

Now days it’s greed and selfishness that we worship

Yes, towards the close of the 20th century,

Politics changed; and a new creed was put in place

See how much more satisfied we are?
