As we journey through the New Year what will it bring?
Just more and yet more of the same old thing?
So my wish list of changes I’ve drawn up again;
And I hope that my wishes are not all in vain.
If we could see that loss of privacy will take such a terrible toll,
And that personal freedom’s more precious than government control.
If mainstream media propaganda was a thing of the past,
And strong moral values were things that would last.
If by the voice of minorities we were not so infected,
And the voice of the majority could be much better projected.
If tradition was not something that we always decry,
And the lessons of history we didn’t always deny.
If technology became our slave, instead of our master,
If we did some things more slowly and not always faster.
If freedom of speech made a welcome return,
And political correctness we were able to spurn.
If tolerance was recognised as sometimes misguided,
And that all forms of respect were no longer derided.
If the UK could be free again to flex its own muscles,
And not controlled by faceless bureaucrats, hiding in Brussels.
If the global warming nonsense would eventually cease,
And the environment could be protected from the likes of Greenpeace,
If the English language could stop being so grossly abused,
And words like racist and poverty could be properly used.
If the West would realise that it could sometimes be wrong,
And the smell from its hypocrisy was not so strong.
If we could realise that our bombs leave their children dead,
And that could be the reason they decide to behead.
If real environmental issues could come to the fore,
And not the political fallacies that we have to endure.
If life could be simpler and not so confusing;
And if a simpler life was there for the choosing!
