When we rush to get things done are we compromizing our morality?


Cut off, cut in, lie, cheat and steal.
Anything goes when you're free wheel.
Caught up in the beat, in the deal.

Frenetic activity on the street.
Staccato, rapido, short and sweet.
Laptops and cell phones communicate neat.

Conference calls and message malls.
No time for anyone to relax at all.
In this precooked, fast food, microwaved pall.

Clone those cows, cloned corn to done.
Food to celebrate; food for fun.
Get your food on the run.

Buy a diploma; work a deal.
Get ahead anyway you feel.
It's the American way to get real.

Cut throat, go for broke, who’s to care?
Unless you are a robber baron,
You ain't going nowhere.

So get on the bus, and come with us,
Where the West is wild and free,
Come to America and join the crowd.

On the freeway to nowhere,
Can’t you see?

Excellent take on the subject!
Reviewed by Victor Jensen
It sure is a rush rush world and it really seems that those who prosper the most are the greedy crooks who consider only themselves. They think they are the movers and shakers but their on a dead end street that leads to hell and damnation. You have captured it well, friend.

Best thing to do is to find the exit! Trouble is most of us don't examine our traveling habits...
Reviewed by Alexander Shaumyan (Reader)
Great poem, Ron. You've captured the American Way really well. Perhaps if we slowed down and reflected a bit, life would be a lot more enjoyable.

I know what you mean by buying diplomas. I always get those kind of e-mail offering diplomas. Makes me wonder does education mean anything to anyone anymore?

Sandie Angel :o)
