Into the wind

   Movie standards were once quite high
 Words like damn were frowned upon
     But now  with the wind those standards are gone
  And frankly,  no  one seems to  give  a damn

 So when the movie" Gone With The  Wind"  came out
The producers had some doubts about
Using the word Damn
Which was to be spoken by Rhett, Scarlet's man
But they relented and the word did stand
And the scene went exactly as planned
 

But what  if the movie  was  made today
What would Rhett Butler say?
It would probably go something like this
Frankly  @#*&#   I don't give  a  #$*@..
Movie standards today  are as low as they can get
The words they use today would make Rhett turn scarlet
