Shame - Poem by Clarence Prince

Shame, where is it gone, it's a shame
No one seems to know, it's such a shame
In these days some of us don't know shame
They are making it become quite a fantasy
Even so, to have lost shame it's a big shame
It's not right for us to void our world of shame

While some people would like to get rid of it
With many of us it'll ever find a place of refuge
Even if, others will kill it for fame and fortune
We know having no shame is still a big shame
It reveals dishonesty but will improve virtue
It's not right for us to void our world of shame

It's an essential guide to induce us to be genuine
Usually it disfigures or dampens wrongdoer's face
It has great power that can change countenance
Revealing all types of misconduct and injustice
We will always need it to live a righteous lifestyle
It's not right for us to void our world of shame

Though seeing how many people are behaving
Shamefully they might've already killed shame
Since only those of us who know what shame is
Won't easily do or say things to make us ashamed
We try to live right for the sake of righteousness
It's not right for us to void our world of shame.

    but will improve virtue....................i'm not following you here, but otherwise i think the poem is fine.

    Though seeing how many people are behaving
    Shamefully they might've already killed shame...................these are my favorite lines.

    i'll unashamedly place this into Section C of November's showcase. Section A of December is empty but open now.

    thanks, a fine idea and rendering, my friend.
