Who will take the place of Mary Whitehouse?
Are you the one who is going to volunteer?
Are you concerned with the decline in morality?
Or one of those who do not really care?
How much longer are we prepared to accept this situation?
Who amongst you is prepared to join in the fray?
In the fight to protect the morals of our nation,
Which appears to be deteriorating with each passing day.
We often hear of people of previous good character,
Who now face charges of downloading pornography,
We wonder how they have become so depraved,
We know it indicates a lowering of standards in society.
Is this because we allow the media to broadcast sex and violence?
Is this because we are prepared to bury our heads in the sand?
Knowing the effects that this is having on society,
Blighting the future for everyone in the land.
Young people now accept this as the norm,
This is the model on which their lives are based,
If we as adults and parents appear to accept it,
Is there any wonder that their standards are debased?
Surely there is something that we can do,
To prevent our country sinking into a sea of immorality,
Please, please try to do something about it,
Please, please do not leave it all to me.

  1. “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually DO the will of my Father in heaven will enter.” (Matthew 7:21)


  2. Well? Will you help? This lists all the problems of which most of the responsible society is aware of, [at the very least your audience is aware of this corruption of the soul through disrespect to the body] but what “help” is the solution?
