Default drug problem........................................... .....

Saw this on another message board


Thought this is very appropriate with today's society!
The other day, someone at a store in a small town
read that a methamphetamine lab had been found in
an old farm house in the adjoining county and he
asked me a rhetorical question, "Why didn't we
have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?"
"I did have a drug problem when I was a kid growing
up on the farm."
I had a drug problem when I was young:
I was drug to church on Sunday morning.
I was drug to church for weddings and funerals.
I was drug to family reunions and community socials no
matter the weather.
I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults.
I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents,
told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect,
spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher. Or if I didn't put forth my
best effort in everything that was asked of me.
I was drug to the kitchen sink if I uttered a profane
four letter word (I do know what Lye soap tastes like).
I was drug out to pull weeds in mom's garden and
flower beds and cockleburs out of dad's fields.
I was drug to the homes of Family, Friends, and
neighbors to help out some poor soul who had
no one, to mow the yard, repair the clothesline
or chop some fire wood, and if my mother had
ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for
this kindness, she would have drug me back to
the wood shed.
Those drugs are still in my veins; and they
affect my behavior in everything I do, say,
and think. They are stronger than cocaine,
crack or heroin, and if today's children had
this kind of drug problem, America might be
a better place today.
