(written about 35 years ago)
What ever happened to yesterday?
Our lives flash by like a busy freeway,
The things that we buy now
simply do not last
Joy and satisfaction are a thing of the past.
We rise, rushing to be on time,
ever in a hurry
Doctors tell us we are dieing
of bitterness and worry.
Where are we going at this mad pace?
Like lemmings, to our deaths we race.
What have we accomplished
through all of this?
Fast food, diabetes, and kidney dialysis.
