A Lost World - Poem by Janice M Pickett

In a world of harsh reality
When nothing matters anymore
I find it hard to remember
what dignity was for

I know that once there were manners
There were rules that kept us in check
I think that children learned from respect
I am sure in retrospect

We never saw sex and nudity
on the television
What happened to the standards of then?
Who made this bad decision?

Since all the values went out with the aged
I fear for the next generation
they flounder in an unstructured world
of sex and deprivation
