A Set of Scruples
Last year’s peace protests have left us bereft;
untold violence, fires, murder and theft.
As long-held morals find themselves interred,
society reaps a conscience that’s blurred.
Peer pressure rules the day, threats from the “gang”
dictate, Cheap counsel chosen, Boomerang!
Bounce back, enroll as one of God’s pupils;
His Word teaches a fine set of scruples.
