Poem 70 of 230:  THE OLD DART

                                        F i l t h y
                                  Street posters
                           (Youth are viewers):
                     Girls drugged or posed so
                   ( How low business can go ) .
                Gays  -  yes;   but  a  surrogate-
            Kid for gays   -   that we tolerate ?
     A Prime Minister now forced to preach -
What tolerance-rung do some aim to reach?
     Long returned, I think it’s gone too far
            And youth are beginning to scar .
                 L e s s      i n d i v i d u a l i s m ;
                     R  e  g  u  l  a  t  i  o  n  i  s  m;
                          And  some  old  values
                               We  all  could  use .
                                   From my heart,
                                        R e s t a r t,
