I wish I was a duck on Alexandra Park pond
I could swim, and fly, and walk and have three wives,
and everything I wanted

But I’m a man. I have a mind,
and three library tickets,
and everything I want is impossible.

No kindly future
will ever repair
a past as vile as ours,

and even if we do achieve a worldwide democratic
socialist state it won’t last.
Nothing decent lasts.
All that lasts is this mess of fighting and pain
and I object to it!
I object!
I object!
