I wrote this one back in 1999, I hope you don't think that that was too long ago to put in here.
The New Millennium
This century has nearly run itís race
And as the time steals steadily past,
A new millennium, we are about to face
For the die will soon be cast.
A new era comes and brings new things
As has all the times thatís passed before,
New technology to all our lives will bring
The unlocking of some new door.
Looking back on things that changed our life,
To all the wonders now unfurled,
The wireless bringing news of strife,
And a music lifeline to the world.
The motor car that replaced the horse,
The jet planes that cross our skies,
All the tragedies that bring remorse
And a hope and faith that none denies.
Enormous steps that technologyís made,
The now take for granted television,
The miracle of the fax displayed
And on new inventions make decision.
Lives changes by computer, plain
And perhaps looked on with some regret,
For many there are that still refrain
From using the magic wonder of the net.
Men have made & dropped atomic bombs
And in other ways been out of tune,
Now our lives are run by the cee-dee rom,
Since man first walked upon the moon.
As we all approach this centuries end
And though to many memories we will cling,
Our hope, our health, our life depends
On what the new milleniumís sure to bring.
