How it Used to Be

wedding

There once was a time
where we could settle things
without sex or violence.
Where things could be talked about
and never ignored.

There once was a time
where success was based on
hard work and merit.
Where the American Dream could be achieved,
even if you were poor.

There once was a time
where we put family first
and selfishness was a crime.
When the dollar wasn’t important
but family dinner was.

There once was a time
where we put our morals first
and our trust in God.
When everything was black and white,
and sin and crime where the same thing.

Yes, there once was a time.
But that time has changed,
because it’s all about ME! ME! ME!
