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
