A Lifetime - Poem by Lau Jane

In the beginning it had begun
the times had turned the wars were won
but the people were found to co-exist
with the plants of the world
which bore tales and myths.

From these times came mortal fears
so did change then tearsof horror
with vampires and warlocks,
from mortal to imortal

Then science was brought
with structures that changed
the drugs grew worse
the world became strange

there were dragons in kitchens,
batmen and catwomen with wings,
people were flying or high as a kite.
substances injected or smoked through a pipe.


We bring about technology
the good the bad the books we read,
these plants i talk of communicate
to you, to me, to the next crusade

the nights getting darker,
the anger is brewing
like the wid horse,
that needs a good shoeing.

the Aussie ways the cultures change
for worse for better, we'll see one day.

from alcohol to roudy brawls
from sms to telephone calls
the world is changing that we know
for the bible told us so

untill that time when we have fun
untill the beginning has rebegun.
