THE OLD PATHS
(email circular)

I liked the old paths, when
 Moms were at home.
 Dads were at work.
 Brothers went into the army.
 And sisters got married BEFORE having children!

 Crime did not pay;
 Hard work did;
 And people knew the difference.

 Moms could cook;
 Dads would work;
 Children would behave.

 Husbands were loving;
 Wives were supportive;
 And children were polite.



 Women wore the jewelry;
 And Men wore the pants.

 Women looked like ladies;
 Men looked like gentlemen;
 And children looked decent.

 People loved the truth,
 And hated a lie.



 They came to church to get IN,
 Not to get OUT!

 Hymns sounded Godly;
 Sermons sounded helpful;
 Rejoicing sounded normal;
 And crying sounded sincere.

 Cursing was wicked;
 Drugs were for illness.

 The flag was honored;



America was beautiful;
 And God was welcome!

 We read the Bible in public;
 Prayed in school;
 And preached from house to house.



 To be called an American was worth dying for;
 To be called an American was worth living for;
 To be called a traitor was a shame!



 I still like the old paths the best!
