There was a time that’s now gone past
When we dreamt dreams that seemed to last
And compromise was but the thought
Of all the lessons we’d been taught.
When life meant more than recompense
And most espoused good common sense
Consideration was the key
To all of God’s humanity.
Alas for most this disappeared
Replaced by arrogance and fear
Is it too late to make amends
To garner strength and still be friends ?
