The Way We Were
In the last days of the techno world
Civility sank under hatred's weight
And degrading epithets were hurled
Thinking that the thing making great men great.
The leadership led with a Gong Show gong
To pocket pick the people's attention
Away from distinguishing right from wrong
Or who deserved an honorable mention.
Then one day there was something amiss
As nature took our sapience to task
With the sort of thing we couldn't dismiss
Without wearing an exceptional mask!
One that kept evil out of our face
As it symbolized our social disgrace.
