Up-To-Date - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

With a leaving those far behind,
Who can not relate...
To these times that blows their minds.
And they would rather wait,
To redo...
What they believe will come back,
To relive.
As if the past will return,
To comfort and satisfy...
Their concerns.

But today like yesterday,
Will move on.
And it wont wait,
For anyone not noticing it gone.
All yesterdays...
Have moved on to leave what was lived,
Gone.
All yesterdays...
Have moved on to leave what was lived,
Gone.
All yesterdays...
Have moved on to leave what was lived,
Gone.

Up-to-date.
With a leaving those behind,
Left alone.
All yesterdays...
Have moved on to leave what was lived,
Gone.
All yesterdays...
Have moved on to leave what was lived,
Gone.

Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date!

Up-to-date.
With a leaving those far behind,
Who can not relate...
To these times that blows their minds.
And they would rather wait,
To redo...
What they believe will come back,
To relive.
As if the past will return,
To comfort and satisfy...
Their concerns.

But today like yesterday,
Will move on.
And it wont wait,
For anyone not noticing it gone.
All yesterdays...
Have moved on to leave what was lived,
Gone.
All yesterdays...
Have moved on to leave what was lived,
Gone.
All yesterdays...
Have moved on to leave what was lived,
Gone.

Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date!

Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date,
Keep it.
Up-to-date!
