Sad song of today

Verse:

Time was before all this upheaval,

Before our modern days of medieval

We could disagree without all the hate,

Where right and wrong collide with pieces of eight


 

Pre-chorus:

Online; you’re safe behind it’s walls,

The hell with compromise, you want it all


 

Verse:

Self-worth is measured by how many agree,

Where “us” has been forced out in favor of ‘me’

Move boldly forward with the armor of delete

Your words of certainty drive all to defeat


 

Pre-chorus:

Online; you’re safe behind it’s walls,

The hell with compromise, you want it all


 

Chorus:

Disappearing over the horizon, civility’s gone,

It might be different but you’re never wrong

Once friends; now strangers cannot share the stage

As bitter fills the sky with black and blue rage


 

Verse:

Once upon a time we were civil at least,

But now bitter angels have been unleashed

Caution in words is a thing of the past

A dangerous and cruel lot has been cast


 

Pre-chorus:

Online; you’re safe behind it’s walls,

The hell with compromise, you want it all


 

Chorus:

Disappearing over the horizon, civility’s gone,

It might be different but you’re never wrong

Once friends; now strangers cannot share the stage

As bitter fills the sky with black and blue rage


 

END

This is excellent, Mike. And it's true. So many will say things that they never would dream of saying in a face to face conversation.

We can disagree about your macho shithead approach to diplomacy, but this is more about losing friends over lack of civility, learning what someone you thought you knew but didn't
