Forward Motion

The times they are a changing
A well-known nasal voiced poet
sung long ago
Sung of the wind blowing
and questioned how long it
would take until we would finally know
The sands of time are running
They poured quickly for a bit
Hand in hand we thought that
we should overcome
A world of peace and harmony
So close we could taste it

Now the sands are running
faster than before
and words of peace retreating
faster than any coward's war
there are some that would applaud
sand run backward and surrender all
to a slippery ribbon reversing all
hard fought and patient waited won
be grateful for the universal laws that
keep forward motion from being easily undone
