I just journey into the street,
Skirts are parading bare-chested
Flaunting flesh dry colored fashionly
Is decency Fading Away?
I just listened to the street's sermon
Gangsters are preachers of volcanic vices
Yearning youth devour vices avidly
Is virtue Fading Away?
I just heard the street's anthem
Your pain is my gain
See, the fire of hatred burning ubiquitously
Is love Fading Away?
I just wept for the children taught by gutters
The theory of John the Baptist. "Taking it by force."
We are haunted by their vitiate daily
Morality has Faded away.
