As we continue on our mutual quest
to match word to letter that fits best.
A word we used to hold dear in years past
has finally come to my mind at last.
A word that once was reserved for royalty
I speak of course of the word LOYALTY.
It may mean to some of us the same
but to most tis only a word and concept lame.
Oh how I worry how times have changed
from when LOYALTY held firm when once engaged.
To now it is only used looking into one's face
well behind one's back deceit is replaced.
It all saddens heart to see the growth of our disgrace
to talk behind back of friends we call to their face.
I fear in whole for the future of the human race
for values once held dear are now erased.
Perhaps by chance my older eyes do not quite see
that there are still among us who believe in LOYALTY.
It's concept can not die if inside of you and me
LOYALTY to God, country, and Family.
