Frankly - Frankly my dear I dont give a damn contest

                                       Frankly
                              
                    

Scarlett was on her own to do what ever she wanted
Because of her the film language today is forever sated

A special law was passed so the infamous words could be heard
Before this time damn was an extremely naughty word

Rhett Butler's vocabulary definitely rocked the screen
People thronged to see this film some had never been

So Gone with the Wind was a winner, Clark  Gable  was no ham
as he stood there and said "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn"

So Rhett you have a loaded conscience, your mouth needed a zip
When your feelings got the  better of you and you let it rip

This attitude has passed to the way people today thinks
A no care way of life oblivious to others stinks

The  morals of some governments are found to be gross
Only looking after the "Me" is what hurts the most.

The leaders of today forget the teachings of the church
Of looking after others, not leaving them in the lurch.

    Yes, Seren, I think that movie was the gateway for bad words getting into scripts. Today's movies make that line look like total innocence by comparison. I guess we could call Gone with the Wind the FLOODgate!! Nicely done.
