Communication!

Communication has changed our perception of living

news is beamed at us all twenty four seven

once we had only local news nothing else

when small settlements were far more common

security a word that was completely unknown

where there was pride and you were safe alone!

 

If  people cannot respect their own neighborhoods

setting the example to the coming generations

with global satellite dishes or cable in most houses

quality of life often measured from the TV screen

everybody’s problems viewed in colour and sound

watched as entertainment reality often not found!

 

Satellite dishes freeview and cable on most buildings

yet on estates private or council a revolution brews

many not setting the example kids do what they like

always the feeling the law is now unable to give help

gangs of youths openly roam out there on our streets

no longer today do police patrols walk their beats!

 

Those days of discipline and respect have now gone

few of their elders have the courage to confront

where too many are afraid to be out on their own

or to be involved or risk any violence alone!

 

Today thugs are of any age parental control gone

always the danger now of a brutal attack

as money for more becomes harder to make

without police backup they will just take!

 

Intimidation as the law becomes ever thinner

peaceful living in most cultures is but a dream

evil and cruelty has become the normal reality

that seems to have a predictable finality!
