A Lacks of Decency

Lost to us in nineteen hundred and fifty one

A mother, a daughter, a human being

Ethics overridden by a hurried income

Lost to us in nineteen hundred and fifty one

What has come to pass cannot be undone

A generation lost, their conscience fleeing

Lost to us in nineteen hundred and fifty one

A mother, a daughter, a human being.
