Reflection on Society

We as beasts are wild by nature,
   Prone to every sort of vice.
Character requires training,
   Lack of which extracts its price.

This was an attempt to write something that you might find in a Primer for Young Men a century ago. However, they likely would have used more complex words, as at that time, educated young men could be expected to understand them. (Wow, I sound am old.)
