Thought Provoking write Up
WHO IS TO BLAME
We read it in the papers, and hear it on the air
Of killing and stealing-and crime everywhere.
We sigh and we say as we notice the trend,
“This young generation …. Where will it end?”
But can we be sure that it’s their fault alone?
Are we less guilty, who place in their way,
Too many things that lead them astray?
Too much money, to much idle time;
Too many movies of passion and crime,
Too many books not fit to be read,
Too much evil in what they hear said,
Too many children encouraged to roam
Too many parents who won’t stay home.
Kids don’t make the movies, they don’t write the books,
They don’t paint the pictures of gangsters and crooks
They don’t make the liquor, they don’t run the bars,
They don’t change the laws, and they don’t make the cars
They don’t make the drugs that muddle the brain,
That’s all done by older folks… eager for gain,
Delinquent teenagers; oh how we condemn
The sins of the nation, and blame it, on them!
Instead of placing blame, let’s fix the cause,
And remember as we pause;
That in so many cases – it’s sad but it’s true,
The title “Delinquent” fits older folks too.
