Going Forwards Backwards

 

Each and every single day there seems to be some world event,

that sets my mind to pondering just quite where time it went;

 

for it seems that there’s some kind of warp that’s quickly taking hold,

and we’re all being subjected to some strange historic fold.

 

Only just a while ago there was a shift to working more together

but now it seems to me that this could now be gone forever --

 

Global isolation is becoming the ultra-modern way of thinking

But haven’t we already been here in some former time that’s blinking

 

on and off to set us on a forward backwards course,

where it’s all down to dominance with no time for remorse.

 

Countries are contracting, thinking of increasing nothing more than power,

a dominant and insulated threat to make all others cower.

 

But there’s another facet to this returning towards the past

with a ‘leader’ ruling everything, making decisions that will last.

 

No government discussion when it comes to writing policy,

more and more one person decides just how our lives should be;

 

a return to authoritarianism, to tyrants and despots

seems the going forwards backwards is what we have just got.
