I remember when the world was real
And people honestly told you how they feel
Now all they do is kill
With knives and words disguised as zeal
Wasting time, robbed of education… what a steal!
I remember when people weren’t afraid to hurt
Mom’s raised kids and upheld their skirts
Dad fostered young men with tucked in shirts
And kids had respect cuz they were raised in church
Yet today they smoke and curse dodging those that murk
I remember when days weren’t so long
Where has our creativity gone?
When will people learn the words to the song?
Instead time’s stuck with a wedgie from a unfit thong
Waiting for knowledge to pull it out so it can move on
Dazed I stand watching and considering tender
Holding on to what I remember
