It was all swell in the beginning

It was all swell in the beginning. Life was well worth the living. We couldn’t of been more forgiving We were all dancing and singing. Now the glory days have disappeared What was once friendly, now feared After all, we have never been cleared Of the vengeful spite that has reared. We couldn’t have forgotten the date That we all have to contemplate But, for surely its not too late… Can we still learn to appreciate? When we are all gone from this place And there is no one left to replace For whence tomorrow we must face What will become of the human race?
