Present, Past & Future


Splendor in the Grass
All withers, nothing lasts
To and Fro, Hither and Thither,
The Present is always
Worse than the Past.

Danger always, up ahead,
Tyranny, shows it's ugly head,
Bad planning, Country bled,
Can't contain the tears,
The yesteryears of song and fun,
Are now forgotten, gone and done
What lies ahead, is no sweet song,
For now, what's right, Before was wrong!

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
