Modern Times

Modern Times


Expect nothing
And you’ll get it

Expect everything
Get even less

Our bodies, ourselves
Your body, ours

You’ve a right to your prejudice
Just not your opinion

I can’t defend free speech
It costs too much


Few words, great deeds
Few deeds, great words

It seemed a good idea at the time
In time there won’t be more ideas

On earth as art in heaven
Heavens, where are thou?

I wish I knew what to say
Say no more
