The Ten Morals: By L. Don Oliver
It is morally right to have, Faith for what you _; It is morally wrong to worship, What others deceitfully __;
It is morally wrong to assail others, Even the words we __; It is morally right to rest, On one day of each _;
It is morally right to honor parents, Even if there may be ___; It is morally wrong to purposely, Take someone else's _;
It is morally right to be honest, To the one you're committed ; It is morally wrong to take, That which doesn't belong to _;
It is morally wrong to utter untruths, For most it leads to __; It is morally wrong to be jealous, Of what others may _;
I've aways lived by the "Golden Moral", Of everything that I _; "To always do for others, What I wish them to do for _";
Sunset of Our Being! By L. Don Oliver
The Sunset of Our Being, It is nearly at it's high; The memories from yesterday, Is tomorrow's sad goodbye;
Dreams that dared to be dreamed, Alas, they will never come true; Those dreams have been destroyed, By the political cunning few;
When twilight meets the night The dreams we use to share; They will all become passe, For those who chose not to care;
The graves of the patriotic ones, Today, they are all in disarray; They're gazing down from heaven above, As their Nation is being given away;
That day will eventually dawn, The Sunset of Our Being is nigh; When it will be too late to say, Where, oh! Where, was I;
