The 60’s Have Been Over for a While

by Dan Provost

It’s not going to be peace and love this time, because those traits come at a hefty price.

You must be willing to emotionally express yourself…to the millions, to the non-believers…to yourself;

Yourself mostly.

So peace and love are great ideals…idolized in song and words…

But it’s not going to be the solution…

If you don’t believe me; look out the window—anytime, any day…

See neighbors hating neighbors…city walkers never acknowledging each other.

Everybody is so fragmented today, so Peace and Love…no…not any more.

It’s the battle for number one now,

two and three are gone.

Buried in another time

Headstones overwrought with long grass and never visited.
