I hate ugly
people behave ugly
at sports stadiums
any public place
it's now all so ugly
beauty never has a chance
it is surrounded
killed off by ugly culture
ugly is promoted on TV
the news the movies the music
beauty gets no play
it is shunned
unadvertised and dismissed
as old fashioned
ugliness is now accepted as the norm
we have grown used to ugly
so we end up in an ugly country
full of ugly people
doing ugly things to one another
what happened to America the Beautiful
now it's just ugly.

It's true. 'Contains unpleasant scenes' is an almost obligatory introduction to TV dramas. 'Contains beauty': who needs that?

The general sentiment expressed is easily understood. It's
recognisable in many modern aspects of life - and not just in
America. Coarseness of language and behaviour can be
witnessed far more often now.. Perhaps it's the "ugly relation"
of the freedom that we now enjoy? But freedom has its own
responsibilities and IMHO that includes the obligation to use
respect and common courtesy in our dealings with each other.
and what we produce in one form or another as we go through
life. Ugly doesn't need to produce "ugly". Indeed, it can spur
the emergence of astounding beauty to adorn our existence..
