It was the age of ignorance

Knowledge weighed in the balance

 

It was the age of discovery

Man was on his way to recovery

 

It was the age of enlightenment

Man discovered he had entitlement

 

It was the age of working together

It was better to serve than sever

 

It was the age of emperors and kings

Man’s downward spiral swings

 

It was the age of slaves and masters

The rich are saved, the poor gulp disaster

 

It was the age of prophets

Man’s first wisdom without profits

 

It was the age of wars

Equal weapons with no equal scores

 

It was the age of solidarity

The world in a latitude shared prosperity

 

It was the age of expansion

The world is a limitless dimension

 

It was the age of tyranny

People are tricked into serenity

 

It was the age of revolutions

Man did not accept soiled solutions

 

It was the age of power

Who’s upper and who’s lower

 

It was the age communication

Barriers removed from destination

 

It is the age of non-conformity

It is the age of untold stories

It is the age of unfinished poetry

It is the age of copper glory
