Is It Any Wonder?

Is it any wonder
Does it come as a surprise?
That our youngsters misbehave
Right before our eyes?

We see our elected officials
Turn ead day
A deaf ear
They shut us out completely and then
They kick us in the rear.

From the Feds on down
Disrespect is the cue
With such fine examples
What can we expect our kids to do?

Our papers are filled
With more morose events
Kids are hurting kids
Where our tax dollars get spent.

Officials are lying – countrywide
Is it so while those who are running
Holler, holler then blow

Is it any wonder
Doest it come as surprise?
That our youngsters misbehave
Right before our very eyes?

Does anyone remember Don Rickles?
His time is really now –
He got “no respect”
We surely understand and how!!!

Our lawyers chase cases
Our doctors beg to cut
There are teachers smoking joints
And tv is spouting smut

Drugs are running rampant
While police abuse many folks
Robbery is how to make it
And harassment becomes a joke

Some firemen set some fires
While preachers spout platitudes once more
Tax dollars keep drying up
So libraries must close their doors.

Is it any wonder
Does it come as a surprise?
That our youngsters misbehave right before our eyes?
