Falling from Grace
©2010 Jeanne E. Webster
What happened to gentility,
The quality of being refined?
(That modest act of civility,
We’ve somehow left behind.)
Morality has hit rock bottom;
Standards have bitten the dust.
Are we on our way to Sodom?
Or is it “Gomorrah or bust”?
Our language is so fouled
With words of depravity,
Best served with clean towels
And a lot less of gravity.
The clothes many women wear
Are pure risqué “in your face”
Men’s rear-ends catch stares
As their pants fall from grace.
Body art exploits the skin
With tattoos, jewelry and cuts
Gothic vogue is definitely in;
Spirited shapes jauntily strut.
Don’t you miss the days of yore
When kids were girls and boys,
Untouched by porn and bloody gore
Or used as sick adult toys?
We’re seeing the destruction
Of the family building core.
T’is time we took our instruction
From the family “Bible” store.
We’ve gone so far off course
Is there no turning back?
Are there stirrings of remorse?
Things are really out of whack!
Pray, come clean and repent:
Some worthy places to start.
Let’s begin with one sentence:
Oh Lord, come into our hearts!
