This Modern World
This modern World sure is dandy.
by Armas Saastamo
With all the sciences makes things handy!
Push button stoves,
V.C.R.'s, videos, and satellite dishes
Pick up programs, whatever one Wishes!
Even lights on command.
By mere clap of the hand!
Then give the computer a whirl,
And send letters instantly, all over the world!
But, my oh my! What can one make
When the only can opener had to break!?
Today I sail Westward, follow the sun,
New land new adventure, new life is my goal!
When old Homeland disappears at Horizon,
Strangest emotions crisscross my soul!
Now I must look forward through teary haze,
That perhaps tomorrow brings better days!
