Too Risky

boy mimics father

You can’t get credit
if you haven’t borrowed
enough in the past.
Being thrifty, living
within your means
makes you a poor
credit risk.
How crazy is this?

Do you ever wonder
how the values of our
go so corrupted?
When a man’s word
and handshake was
better than a complicated
contract today. Integrity,
honesty, compassion
are hard to find
in a world ruled by greed.

Did you teach your children
by the example you set
to be honest, to help others
care for the land
stand tall with self-respect?

Let’s come together
to right this topsy-turvy
world, restore what man has
ruined, live lives of honor.
