Who is to blame?

Who is to blame?

We read it in the paper and hear it on the air
Of killing and stealing and crime everywhere.
We sigh and we say as we noticed the trend,
This young generation..where will it end?

But can we be sure that its their fault alone?
Are we less guilty, who place who place in their way?
Too many things that lead them astray?
Too much money, too much ideal time
Too many movies of passion and crime.

Too many books not fit to be read
Too much evil in what they hear said.
Too many children encouraged to roam
Too many parents who wont stay home.

Kids dont make the movies, they dont write the books
They dont paint the pictures of gangsters and crooks.
They dont make the liquor, they dont run the bars,
They dont change the laws, and they dont make the cars.

They dont make the drugs that muddle the brain;
Thats all done by older folks.. eager for gain.
Delinquent teenagers; oh how we condemn

The sin of the nation and blame it on them.
Instead of placing, lets fix the cause,
And remember as we pause;

That in so many cases its said but its true“
The little âdelinquent fits older folks too!
