ICEMAN - DAYS GONE BY....
This story has not yet been rated.
Can you remember years ago?
When life seemed, well... just good you know?
When 'Please' and 'Thankyou' filled the air
And Kids played Hopscotch, not a care
Neighbours stopped to chat awhile
cross garden fence with cheery smile
Doors were always open wide
A welcome guaranteed inside
A favour asked was always done
With cheery snile that scolded none
When teachers had control of class
And local councils cut the grass
When Nurses were the very best
Not hindered by another 'test'
When 'Sister' ran the ward so well
And gave the cleaners so much hell.
When 'Coppers' clipped you round the ear
without a 'libel suit' to fear
When shops sold food without the 'E'
Just fresh and wholesome, you could see
When half past eight was time for bed
Not walking streets at 12 instead
When politicians held good grace
Not greedy slobs without a face
And Europe seemed a friendly sort
We trusted it.... we never ought...
So all in all have things progressed?
Well that they have my friends 'oh yes'!
But do i yearn for days gone by...?
Oh so much so.. that I could cry...
