Our old world

…everybody who has rushed into Icon´s abyss
                                  ( will kiss and kiss again )
         and then meet at the corner of Hi and Bye

Masha ( you carry Spain within you ) and oh, how
         I wanted to put a tiny scar on your cheek
         by the way, do you still drink the same wine?
         To me you were the only star of Mrs Winnipeg
         ( they told me you were to be a heroine )
They all thought you were going to change the world
         and its politics
         ( how childish when I come to think about it )
Masha! You did not spin around my Ego-Cosmos
Sometimes I believe you were not even there!
         ( Ha, everything was EU that semester )
          where then are we now?

          enemies?
          some sort of aquintances?
          we would tell the same old stories,
          discussing old colonies ( oh, yeah! ),
          thinking we are so free and radical
Everything a kind of Middle-class world ( I sigh! )…..
          And all the rest will be referred to in accurate terms
          ( something forgotten, something lost )
          issues we say we understand

and Mrs Winnipeg, you will be for-ever there!
The one and only Aristocrat to me
          ( arguments so prepared )

Masha did not have to claim the world stem from our Civilisation
And somehow I look up at the old Icons on the wall
