Remember at one time running the numbers racket was illegal
yet today governments control casinos and lotteries
bleeding dry and ruining lives through promotion of gambling addiction
narcotics was a dirty word
but cannabis in many jurisdictions is legal
promotion of weed
a brave political deed?
Alcohol was once a great sin
but into the government coffers tax revenue is overflowing the bin
with the social consequences of drinking lost in the euphoretic tax grab din
Then hookers and pimps once seen so evil
now permitted by governments oh money can be so venal
To hell with immorality
with such huge sums of cash
we have a new group of elected thugs
hustling into the territory of once reviled mugs!
Progression or regression?
or has it all come down to stuffing the government’s coffers
What is next after legalization of sex for hire
spells something very dire!
that our politicians can only aspire
