Traditional Family Values
by Phronesus Disegno
Age Group: Adult
"Traditional Family Values", puh-lease!
Defend them! Hurry, Quick!
To praise this divisive political stance
Quite honestly makes me sick.
Separate but equal, excuse me but...
With separation, it's not equal.
This happened once because of race!
Please, not another sequel.
Divorce occurs the fastest here
Among the poorest states,
The lead in teenage pregnancy,
And high-school drop out rates,
The children without health care,
Teenage smokers still increase,
Per capita, the most women in jail!
And most everyone's obese.
So where's the understanding?
Our representative to Washington, as a whole:
A divorced and sickly pregnant smoking
Teenage drop-out on parole...?
Your "Traditional Family Values",
Quit pretending they're so blessed!
A crock of cockamamie crap
To keep us all oppressed.
Author's Notes: You know, the people here in Oklahoma are rather nice most of the time, but the government is bass-ackwards. Just doing my little part to unbuckle things in the center of the evil and oppressive Bible Belt.
