A long, long time ago in America
things were very different in society.
The police were respected as they protected
up holding the laws in our communities.
You could leave your windows open.
and your doors unlocked with no fear
of being murdered in your sleep,
also to let in the fresh air of the good life.
The aroma of a real home cooked meal
permeated a Summer day in the neighborhood.
Children actually played freely outside
until dark and after with no fear of disappearing.
Now society is guarded like Fort Knox,
caged like wild animals no longer prowling.
Instead of a handshake or body language
a text shows our supposed human affection.
Nowadays families no longer live behind
a white picket fence with lace curtain windows.
It's all technological human concern
with no human embrace or grace of touch.
