I Liked the Old Ways

Monday, March 03, 2014

I liked the old ways, when
Moms were at home,
Dads were at work,
Brothers went to College,
And sisters got married BEFORE having children!

Crime did not pay;
Hard work did;
And people knew the difference.

Moms could cook;
Dads would work;
Children would behave.

Husbands were loving;

Wives were supportive;
And children were polite.

Women wore the jewelry;
And men wore the pants.

Women looked like ladies;
Men looked like gentlemen;
And children looked decent.

People loved the truth,

And hated a lie.

Hymns sounded Godly;
Sermons sounded helpful;
Rejoicing sounded normal;
And crying sounded sincere.

Cursing was wicked;
Drugs were for illness.

The flag was honored;

America was beautiful;
And God was welcome!

We read the Bible in public,
