A new low…

When truth does not matter anymore
And people say whatever they want, true or not
When you need to fact-check someone’s assertions
Because we can’t trust them

When dishonesty is rewarded by material gains
When you can’t count on anyone’s words
And they keep denying what can’t be denied

Our society has reached a new low

When we expect politicians to lie
At least sometimes
When accusations fly back and forth
With no way to prove who’s telling the truth

When women are objectified
And those remarks are asked to be excused
As locker-room talk
What kind of example are we setting for the young?

When civility is lost
And words are spoken that make one cringe
When insults take the place of discussion and talk
We know we have reached a new low in our society

Don’t get me wrong
I think there is hope
But, boy does the night seem dark
Before the appearance of the dawn
