Respect's Disappearance - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

What troubles me
Is the lack of respect
Respect jumped off the bridge
10 years after Aretha Franklin's single
Hit the charts
It is almost as if
It was the last ditch effort
To keep it among us
Now it has vanished
With it
Our souls and patience
Everything that was once good
Is now just a distant memory
On a photograph
