A Wonderful Poem

juxtaposed

What do we want?
“Justice!”
When do we want it?
“Yesterday!”
What are we going to
Do about it?
“Nothing!”

Just get through today
Keep the vultures at bay
Got the Man’s bills to pay

Oh, when, then?
But when, then?

“Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
And after I’ve borrowed”

“What do we want?
“Peace!”
When do we want it?
“Yesterday!”
What are we going to
Do about it?
“Nothing!”

War’s here to stay
We have battles in play
Better kneel down and pray

But when, then?
Oh, when, then?

“Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
And after the sorrow”

“What do we want?
“Democracy!”
When do we want it?
“Yesterday!”
What are we going to
Do about it?
“Nothing!”

Time to obey
Still the Will
Kill the way
Shed your say
Blindly follow
The madness of men
Until..

When, then?
Oh, when, then?

“Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
And after the hollow”
