Can you remember the words that were spoken,
or the words in the song,
listing all the things we’d done wrong?
Did the world collide, did it end?
Did the nuclear bomb send us all around the bend?
Or are we still here making a mess,
never having learned, what was best?
Did we really just flit past
without even making a draught?
* * *
Are the children of today better than us?
Will they use the new words like environmental,
as they climb over our …. and twist an ankle?
There is nothing as dangerous as a democracy
when the government can’t afford to be
because all are poor and living in poverty.
Save the earth for what?
Well, first you will have to remember
Everything we forgot!
If there’s a God floating high on a cloud
I doubt very much He’s feeling proud?
And if I’m right and He feels no pride,
Then there’s no point in me trying to hide.
