Early days of this century are chaotic

Terriorism, pandemic, climate change

Democracies in turmoil

Authoritative countries making their moves

As we move further in this century

We will need another Roosevelt, Teddy or Franklin

A Churchill, a Thatcher, a DeGaulle

But I see none on the horizion

Clumsy leaders I see

A Carter, a Heath, an Eden

I see some today as a Chamberlain

Waving a white piece of paper

Afghanistan: a quagmire without end. No good solutions.

With US troops pulling out in September, the Taliban will take over and it will be like it was 20+yrs ago.
The Russians at Ukraine's door, China claiming all of the South China Sea, yeah, it's gonna be an interesting next few years.
