Get Rid Of The Advertisements

FOLK LORE
 
A LONG TIME AGO IN THE 1800'S
WHEN A PERSON STARTED TO GET
OLD, THEY NO LONGER COULD
TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES SO
THEY WERE LEFT OUT IN THE COLD

PUT UP IN AN OLD ATTIC ROOM AND
LEFT THERE WITH NO ONE TO
TALK TO, IF THEIR CHILDREN OR
WHO EVER IT WAS WANTED THEY
TOOK THEM SOME FOOD.

SOMETIMES IT MIGHT BE A DAY
OR TWO IF THE FOLKS DOWN
STAIRS HAD SOMETHING ELSE
TO DO. THEY JUST LEFT THEM THERE
TO LIVE OR DIE DIDN'T MATTER TO
THEM WHICH OR WHO.

THIS IS A SAD STORY, BUT TRUE.
