All the celebreties left,
Only to appear on screen.
Sonya Henje favorite skater and ice princess,
Model for future skaters.
Politicians of the past,
Fading with excellence.
The age they said,
Retirement alluring and final.
The iron curtain, a dangerous passage,
Gone, no memory and a flight to freeedom.
Miracles from the papal realm,
A church of God guiding.
The perfect man elusive and evading
At a senior age, daring to be young again.
Futures like the past,
Pioneering reality and simplicity.
Stop and listen to wisdom,
A retreat to the cottage country.
