Today's Tolerance For Decay

Be you one of caution,
When a flaring temper goes off.
The fumes of it...
Will and can spit foam,
To venomize.

Be weary of those,
Who make light of your life...
With childish pranks to provoke.
Innocently they will make claims,
Their actions to defame was just for fun.

Be you one of caution,
When a flaring temper goes off.
The fumes of it...
Will and can spit foam,
To venomize.

And this they will do,
After one who has professed an innocence...
Realizes those who are adults,
Are not seeking children to play with.

And children not understanding this,
Must be punished.
Or they will miss the gravity of their actions.
And missing the gravity of their actions,
Has resulted in today's tolerance for decay.
