       I've been wishing it was the old days, like the time of The Donna Reed show when children were taught morals and ethics and especially integrity. Integrity is a word that so many do not even know the meaning of. If this is the case with you, I blame your parents and teachers...it basically means doing the RIGHT thing when no one is looking. I'm also still bitter about being denied any medical assistance because I make too much unemployment...which may I add doesn't even cover the cost of my medications.

    What do we do when we walk out those doors?
    Keep our heads down with eyes to the floor
    Beauty passes by that we choose to ignore
    So stuck in our bruises and intentional sores

    Neighbors walk by that don't bother to say Hi
    Heads turn away from a child who cries
    Abandonment in the center of every goodbye
    Honesty spoken in the form of more lies

    Generation obsessed with their own reflection
    Kids home alone with video game protection
    Not enough choices to make a selection
    Not that it matters with a rigged-up election (Bush)

    Bills piled so high, they threaten to fall
    While welfare clients can still shop at the mall
    Your feet may be grounded but you continue to fall
    The only real comfort when you're curled in a ball

    Law-abiding citizens can't get a break
    Injured on the job leaves everything at stake
    Loop-holes in the system for the greedy to fake
    While the needy begs for change for meds to take

    What happened to the times when people cared?
    When integrity was born naked and bare
    The good are now zombies with an empty stare
    Freedom isn't free and nothing is fair
