This work has reached the exceptional level
There was a time back when I recall things.

In the good old days

by Lance S. Loria

I recall when doing a crime meant going to jail and doing the time,
In the good old days.
It was a time when freedom of speech was the beat and not just for the privileged elite,
In the good old days.
When owning handguns was our mission for sport, self-defense and honored tradition,
In the good old days.
Where spirited debate was a gentleman's brawling to find solutions without name-calling,
In the good old days.
We hold these truths to be self-evident,
Now as in the good old days.
