Thatís progress

 

 

Another mall.

Another high way.

Another sky scrapper,

and what do we say!?

ďThatís progress.Ē

 

Another pill.

Another invention.

And another break

from natural tradition and

Thatís progress.

 

Another big city.

On and on we go.

Another mouth to feed

in the Ghetto and,

Thatís progress.

 

Another fallen tree.

Another river we pollute.

While all the while

we proclaim the excuse,

ĎThatís progressí

 

ĎThatís progress.í

ĎThatís life.í

Another terms for man

avoiding strife and what do we say,

 

"Well thatís progress."
