Old Fashioned

They tell me I’m old fashioned

and in my ways too set

They say I’ve placed the bar too high

a fact I should regret…

It’s true I’ve lived a long time

Yes, my standards are not low

You see I like integrity

and excellence that shows…

I watch as we race forward

With technologies great speed

and entitled bad behavior

of those with selfish greed

The levels of intolerance

of prejudice and hate

Atrocities of humankind

seems now to be our fate…

So, yes…I am old fashioned

as on this earth I cope

I still believe we can improve

at least that’s what I hope…
