Today's Culture


TODAY'S CULTURE


Rhett Butler said to Scarlett O'Hara
Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn
The movie industry hurtled a barrier
And American culture took a slam

In today's language it is totally denoted
The word damn is preceded by God
Though against it,  many Christians have voted
Their values have been greatly trod

Movies, with such blatant disregard
For the principles on which we were founded
Make movies that should be forever barred
And the voice of sanity be sounded

As a nation, America is falling
Like a meteor hurtling through space
Politicians are missing their calling
Many term our country a disgrace

But Scripture will point us to glory
If God's Word America would heed
 Then all would know the end of the story
Eternal life in Heaven, indeed

    Thanks, Donna! I love your support. Without the support of those poets that I respect, I'd probably quit submitting poems. You keep me going.

    Thanks, Kim: I often times 'call it like I see it' and end up getting hate mail. That's okay, cause I sleep well at night no matter what people may have to say about me. Especially when I feel I am right. Thanks for your support.

    You're right, Andrea, it isn't just us and it is sad that the world has gone astray in so many ways.

    Thank you, Dr. Ram for your kind remarks. As I said to Allen Danie, I expect to get some hate mail comments but if I do, I'll respond with a Christ-like attitude. That is the best way to handle any negativism. Again, thank you for your comments and support.

    Thanks, Allen! I will probably get hate mail for this, but I wrote it for a contest that solicited true thoughts and feelings about the subject. I appreciate your positive comments. They are a welcome sight to me.
