What a sad song!

I’m borrowing from the net and from Candice in Regina Canada.

Candice’s words were, “Near the Sanctuary is a playground, deserted during the Covid-19 ban on public parks.”  I could have gone out and got a photo from around Ballarat but this isn’t just a problem in Australia. It’s in Canada too.

I do hope things get better, but my mantra now is, “I hope we do not get back to the normal that brought us here”  And because my mind works when I least expect it to I thought of the following song.

Where Do the Children Play?
Well I think it’s fine, building jumbo planes
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train
Switch on summer from a slot machine
Yes, get what you want to if you want
Cause you can get anything
I know we’ve come a long way
We’re changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?
Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas
And you make them long, and you make them tough
But they just go on and on, and it seems that you can’t get off
Oh, I know we’ve come a long way
We’re changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?
Well you’ve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air
But will you keep on building higher
‘Til there’s no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?
I know we’ve come a long way
We’re changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?
