The Mortality of American Morality

The Mortality of American Morality

A Poem by Eddie Phillips
"

It's dead and we have to face it.

"
There is a mortality to American morality that we all now see.
We have allowed decorum and kindness to fade into history.
Once we called it bestial to treat a woman like a piece of flesh.
We hated those who molested others because of money and success.
Grabbing a women's vagina was seen as a crime and act of aggression.
Today we made a man president that happily engages in this obsession.
When did we lose our way? What was the final straw?
What killed our shared morality and suspended the rules of law?
We eagerly watch ourselves fight like animals in the street.
We watch as cops, politicians, and criminals prey on the weak.
Our children are losing their way; sex is all they ever see.
We make heroes out of butter fiends who in turn subjugate the sweet.
Innocent people are being shot dead with the guns we hold so dear.
We ignore that The totals rise more and more every heartbreaking year.
The morality of America is not about being politically correct.
It is about treating others with simple dignity and respect.
Xenophobia was never acceptable and neither was violent assault.
Somehow we have embarrassed The madness and see decorum as a fault.
Sadly, the morality of America is running on life support.
A few of us want to keep it alive but a few idiots want to abort.
We are silently here listening to our failing American heart.
Meanwhile, our greedy American family is waiting to tear our fortunes apart.
Mortality has killed morality. The age of reason is now officially gone.
We are husks watching mindless savages destroy every benefit we have won.

The tree of freedom must oft be watered with blood. I'm not for a revolution but we definitely need a revival. We have lost our moral compass; and the further we get away from God and family, the more we find ourselves in the dark. This poem isn't an opinion. It's a banner of truth to those who hear.
