Changing Times - Poem by roy may

It seems to me the worlds gone mad
Things now are good that once were bad
These shifting values make me sad

Society’s is out of hand
These changes I don’t understand
I feel I’m in a foreign land

I know that I am getting old
impatient, frail and feeling cold
Yet my values I will always hold

For they are what made me

    Thank you for your poems. While I can't say that I necessarily share your values, I appreciate your appreciation for 'old style' rhyming verse and lyrical flow.

    'These shifting values make me sad'...but why? How is morality not relativistic, a mere social contract, if you don't believe in G-d? Perhaps we have extremely different definitions, (most likely the case) , but to me this poem borders on the incomprehensible.
