A generation will by no means

A generation will drag its heels
To the finishing line
A generation that will see
The end of the system of things
Perhaps from the end
of the two world wars
until, by human folly
climate change kicks in like a mule

it feels like a generation has passed
living through the social changes
the trust in science and technology
to how the world has become
complicated and hard to fix
and connected by spring steel cables

I feel as though I’m standing
On the doorstep
Watching the world sail away
On one last big adventure
The war of paradise
