Dissertation - Poem by AHO Speaks

Many years ago during the millennium of time
Human beavior was quite different then yours or mine
When a female got her curse
She became a woman and I'm not sure whIch was worse.

Is there anyone who doesn't know what the word curse means
That would be a good subject for research of the human scene
Quite a few definitions but outcast seems to be the one.
You can bet Mothers would never do that to a loving son.

Can we just throw away years of time and what is the impact? .
I understand we did that during the industrial revolution as a fact
Years of what we call childhood just thrown away
Childhood time nonexistent; because of something called; ' a work day'.

Is there a oneness between the time of now and the time of then
Are culture and history really opposites like now and when?
Young boys working in factories and some in a coal mine
Even young girls long before their appointed time.

Now most just hang around, go to school and need an occassional crutch
But I know we love them each; very, very; much.
Would a true and loving God sanction the past way of life
Or does he give us time to produce our own foibles to generate strife.

God will not change what man has wrought nor man's desire
Just as the parent can not stop the child from touching the fire
There is no reason for God to help man if man can help himself
We are given enough gifts from our God to share among ourselves.
