Yesterday Has Gone Like Every Yesterday - Poem by Francis Duggan

Yesterday has gone like every yesterday
And our biological clocks ever ticking away
And since we are born as mortals as the sheep or the cow
We only can live in the here and the now.

The king he has died and his subjects do sing
At the news of his passing 'long live the king'
They are singing in grief and defiance at the news of his death
But their king he is dead he has drawn his last breath.

Yesterday has gone it is now in the past
And the seconds of our lives keep ticking on fast
And everyone does grow older but few do grow wise
And every day some do see their last sunrise
The now is what matter the future ahead
And all we have left are memories of the dead
And we can only live in the present since yesterday's gone
And the clocks on our lives ever tick on and on.
