The cost of freedom for the USA
Is in the trillions of dollars for their arsenal
Empires expand like a balloon
And then collapse.
Britain, France, Belgium and others
All took countries in their stride
Now there is the European common market.
Once the globe was nearly red for the UK
In the name of Victoria
Now awards are given - the OBE and MBE with others.
Britain has no empire.
We that forget their past are living on borrowed time
It was only sixty odd years ago
That Germanys venom mixed with their love of music
Seduced the populace with terror.
Why is our planet overwhelmed with hatred
For differences in race, creed and religion?
Basted with paranoia
Time runs short for us all,
Through our ignorance and greed
A veil has been drawn over our faces
So to look into the future is an impossible vision.
