THE POST WAR DREAM - UPDATED FOR 2008

Tell me true, tell me why, was Jesus crucified
Is it for this that Daddy died?
Was it you? Was it me?
Did I watch too much T.V.?
Is that a hint of accusation in your eyes?
If it wasn't for the nips
Being so good at building ships
The yards would still be open on the clyde.
And it can't be much fun for them
Beneath the rising sun
With all their kids committing suicide.
What have we done, Maggie what have we done?
What have we done to England?
Should we shout, should we scream
"What happened to the post war dream?"
Oh Maggie, Maggie what did we do?

Comments:
I read the lyrics to this song in 9th grade English class when we were all reading poems.

I am now curled up in a ball of crushing shame.
 
I did 'The Trees'
