The New Jerusalem

Remember when the future seemed so bright
With rocket packs to take us to the moon
The silver and the glass and so much light
For everything was getting better soon
And here we are the new Jerusalem
A cynic’s paradise where lies are trump
They took humanity and down we come
Instead of peaking we are lost in slump
CCTV big brother watching us
And if we criticise we are to blame
For if you’re innocent why make a fuss
Atrocities committed in my name
With capital and fear the nation states
Have optimism crushed with their dictates
