There Was Once A Time

by James W. Spain, II


There was once a time
when you could protect your children

from all things bad
and feel confident that nothing would leak

into their young minds
to taint the innocence of youth.

There was once a time
when you would be shocked

to see innocent people suppressed
and put to death for what they believed in

regardless of where they lived but
especially in our country and in our own back yards.

There was once a time
when you heard of strange diseases

such as a plague or pandemic
that killed many people and

showed no mercy regardless of your
social standing or class.

There was once a time,
But that time has ended.
