End of dreams

The End of Dreams. 

It was going to be so good for you and me,
the future, less work, more leisure, more 
equality and end of wars.

 Now we have ended up vilifying the poor
bombing children in Afghanistan, and we 
blame it on the pesky Taliban. 

The poor kill their children because they 
have too much time on their lazy hands
according to the politicians.

Hard working families is the new mantra
and if you haven´t got a job it is your fault 
for not trying hard enough. 

The future didn´t turn out the way we had
foreseen , war is all around us needs too,
we are back in the past´s despair.
