Is this world becoming morally bankrupt?
All our morals slowly turn and corrupt
So tell me what morals we shall waive
Will morals be held by only the brave?

Has the decline of morals gone too far?
Is it morally correct to steal a car?
Is it morally correct to take a life?
By using a gun a club or a knife

Is it morally correct to be a thief?
Is it morally correct to give your neighbours grief?
Is it morally correct to cheat and to lie?
If it is then please just explain why

Is it morally correct to be a town crier?
Or more moral to put someone’s face in a fryer
Is it morally correct to abuse young and the old?
It is incorrect morally so I have been told

Only one of the above is morally right
I will leave you to judge using your moral insight
Then if you can sus it maybe the worlds plight
Can be saved if for morality we all stand and fight
