Gone

Where has it all gone We were the saviours of the world There was so much about us That was admirable We were role models For a world at war We lived selflessly We sacrificed joyously We sang and danced In the midst of adversity We shared and cared In spite of dire circumstances Our convictions were sound Our lives were exemplary We were revolutionary Ideologically sound Practically relevant There was so much about us That was admirable How did we lose Such a treasured position Why did we become Like everybody else We had a clear mission Eradicate poverty, end injustice Restore hope, bring back integrity There was no room for compromise Yet here we are Living the dream Losing the meaning
