montreal april 21/ 82 (lunch with d.c.)

what about the children
must they
do it all again
live their lives in fancy dreams
just to find
that in the end
what they thought was real
what they thought was right
was just a lot of imitation
of people they thought bright

is there not another way
some essentials they might grasp
get ready for a real world
a new age
that's coming fast
