Treat it with Care

Born in 1949

It was the start of – 

My time

A child through

The fifties when-

I didn’t understand

What era had just past

Post- war austerity

An era of want

Parents who loved us

They rebuilt the country

After the world was at strife

Alł they wanted for us

Was a better life

And so I’ve had my era

Of scientific discovery

Of progress and plenty

Spoiled only by the failure

Of mankind’s inhumanity

And so to the young

The baton we pass

Now is your era

Ours is now past

Treat it with love

The future is yours

Treat it with care
