How we made before 2017?
We spoke to horses in plains,
We listened to Billy Joel and Anne Bancroft
We cried as well dipped madeleines.

We drank some beer with the buddies,
We tried to pick up the Swedish hitch-hikers,
We slept in sleeping bags,
We believed in Santa Claus even in July

We dreamed that we were geniuses,
We read comic strips for adults,
We were kings of the jungle, Needs to say,
Needs to say that Cadillac moved forward much less faster than now.

"the world" indeed seemed to spin at a slower pace ... now, this nation is a double-post-modern "Runaway American Dream" ...
