What’s so new about it?
The only thing changed is four digits…
I changed seven with a new phone number!
Does Y2K make the hate go away?
Times Square with its two million people invading the streets
Hugging and kissing as the ball dropped
Will revert to a place of mugging and killing tomorrow.
The world’s fireworks will again be dropped bombs
Once they all realize that the end did not come when the clock struck twelve.
And why should it?
Why would God take the time to end this world as we know it
When we are doing such a bang-up job ourselves?
A little tolerance is a dangerous thing;
It may lead to widespread understanding
And an epidemic of compassion,
Posing a threat to many people’s way of life.
Oh, that the world would be so plagued!
