1989, the end of a decade. The nineteen-eighties was a decade of growth, especially in technology. A growing worldwide population combined with growing ideation. So much learned and yet so much still to learn.
Every year we plant seeds and every decade we reap what we sow. Sure we make mistakes along the way and unfortunately, some are irreversible. But we must continue our journey by living in the moment and if we are awarded a prize for our good deeds, let’s be sure to share it with our fellow man.
You gotta raise the bar if you want to go far
Spare yourself a moment for all about you
Don that monocle if you really can’t see
You gotta go sideways to not miss the cue
The word’s out life doesn’t fit to a tee
Pinkin perfection causes too much grief
Oh pitter patter what does it matter
It’s no secret that reason is a thief
Don’t grit your teeth and shut your chatter
Is it true there’s Christmas in July
Put a note on the frig this is what I want
Yes, I’m serious and this is no lie
I’m yearning for a sarcasm font
