(Poet Laureate Putnam County) Morals Down? I never saw so many polls Where right took second place, Most readers know it is true In almost every case... It seems to me the larger cities Give birth to 'morals down', However I feel there are some In every little town... Let's pray all will search their souls And stand for the 'moral right', We must protect our people And a!! things that are right... It's been said we axe immoral To a point past half-way, If this be true the most and few Should seek new laws while they may.
