Some sighingly long
For days of old
When things were so much better.

When people en masse
Knew right from wrong
And water was so much wetter.

A time when all
Had perfect jobs
And life was far less bitter.

Just tell me who
Will be the one
To tell Trump there’s no Twitter.

And let’s not forget
Cures will be lost
If we head back to days of yore.

Plus every new human
More recently born
Will suddenly be no more.

The past may be wrapped
In filters of gold
But glitter just masks the haze.

What might seem so great
In memory’s mind
Oft leaves out much darker days.
