:) Reading, Writing, Arithmetic And Morals - Poem by Bill Grace

The insight from the old school house
Was greater than its simple room
Before the time men walked on the moon
And assorted means and mechanisms
Continued to assert their powers of true Gods
Which would claim our greater centers.
The fact that morality was taught against a backdrop
Where sin was regarded as much more real
And a force of our nature worthy of contention.
