Bronze Star - 5,195 Points (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Rehabilitation Experts


There is nothing innocent,
That can compare these children today...
To an innocence that lacks a discipline,
Children did not get yesterday.
To release the ignorance of excuse making parents,
Who refuse to be parents to set examples made.
Instead of being afraid to offend their 'friends'.
Like many parents want to be to their thoughtless children.
With a doing to please their ungrateful minds.

And parents accepting this position,
As a disposition to take...
To raise friends and not adults to make to offend,
With expectations to receive positive results...
Are left to prove themselves to be fools...nothing else,
In this day and age when it has been discovered...
They have spent time accusing someone else,
For not having the expertise or qualifications...
To babysit, teach, discipline or produce respectable kids!

'We need more qualified teachers.'

~We do in our prison facilities.
They are now called rehabilitation experts.
And their success rates have been phenomenal.~

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
