Worth is not grounded on morals or manners,
but on magnificence and money.
Personal profiles are plentiful with
portrayals of physical perfection.
Women wonder why
wardrobes are worn
which epitomize the perception
that the wearer would act wildly.
Fads feature food as forbidden fruit.
Fashion fosters fear of fat.
Families feast on fast food in a frenzy
of festivities and fun.
Perhaps, as parents ponder
particular pleasures for their progeny,
the importance of teaching
toddlers tolerance and intellectual truth
will intensify.
Regardless of riches,
without worldly wisdom,
we will all wither.
