The forced collective suicide of Western nations…
a preemptive apology to future generations.
Children of tomorrow
Children of tomorrow, I apologize to you
On behalf of those in my time, for the things we didn’t do.
We didn’t stop the tyrants, so your fate could be prevented
We watched them steal our freedom, by our silence we consented.
We didn’t choose to circumvent
the doom you’ve not escaped
While the Bill of Rights was murdered and the Constitution raped.
Some of us were lazy, others too afraid
To think about our children, the ones we have betrayed.
I guess we were too busy to be concerned or care
To try to ease the burden of the chains we made you wear.
We could have been good shepherds when the wolf got in the fold
But we watched the flame of freedom die instead, and left you cold.
I’m sorry we were timid, my selfish generation
For we left you but a remnant of a free and prosperous nation.
I’m sorry for our actions, like cowards we behaved
We could have left you freedom, but instead you are enslaved.
Children of tomorrow, descendants of our land
I’m sorry we allowed this, the fate you now withstand.
