Very few with scruples,
Are around anymore.

We use to have them.
To pick up sand at the beach.
But that was a long time ago.
When we were kids? '

Those were 'scoops' not scruples.

Then what are scruples?

'People who have 'them' are...
Honest and upright.
Careful and considerate.
And display with a showing,
Of moral integrity.
And have a regard for what is right,
With a treating of others with respect.'

Will you stop joking.
I'm serious.
What are scruples?
