Oh Solomon, where is thy wisdom now

What confidence your heart and you allow

What kindness does it take for you to live

With all that wisdom that is yours to give ?

Oh foolishness beyond your every dream

Are you as true or only that you seem ?

Our hearts are full with eyes cried dry

Why must our youth so sadly die ?

How many dreams have withered there

Upon the vine of unkempt care ?

I find the world is occupied

With selfishness and foolish pride

Such nonsense to cast sense aside

While from the truth forever hide !

Slowly, slowly, as years unwind

What kind of future shall we find,

Where are the endless ways we’ve lost

And who is left to count the cost

Oh foolish ones of no context

Please tell us what will be the next !

There was a bridge in the Great War

That both sides had been fighting for

So many died in that one fight

From early morn to darkest night

Tis true that they performed their best

Though in the end all failed that test.

They died there by the River Somme

As back and forth all hell did come

Of Brits alone some price to pay

Fifty-eight thousand fell that day

Now this occured lifetimes ago

And none are left who really know

But tell me please if any can

What does this say about a man ?

 

 

 

REPRISE ( 2016 ) 2016/08/17

I now have dreamt a thousand dreams

Not one of them came true

For they were naught but crazy schemes

And foolishness we knew.

Our dreams are meant to give us hope

Perhaps a brand new chance

No matter what the age or scope

Reprise is our last dance !

There’s nothing left that one can say

About the sadness of this day

We wish that we could melt away

This hurtful pain that’s come our way.

Oft times our lives turn upside down

And can’t be saved with smile or frown

As these our hopes seem apt to drown

Some other action must be found  !
