What time are we living in


It’s not if but since the future can be told

   To a broadly verifiable degree

What time are we living in: present old

   Future or has it all gone past already

Don’t tell it for honours to politicos

   They hanker after two-bit history lines

Don’t even whisper it to military macros

   Lest generals decorate brows with vines  

Don’t spill the truth to those who slaughter

   With God on their bloody bleeding minds

For they will leave none alive hereafter

   And lease Heaven out to kith and kinds

Time is but a ruse of passing moments 

The more it unfurls the more the laments.

    That's really very kind of you to let me know how you felt. I wish I could find the time to visit the pages of all the well-wishers at PS, but the time I have at my disposal is far too restricted. Too much to do. Thanks very much again. Every good wish. Wignesan
