Past Imperfect

They’ve much to answer for
It’s easy to say
Yet personal history
Made them that way

Experience moulded them
They weren’t prepared
By some media pundit
Just knowledge shared

Though life threw things at them
They coped best they could
Though some times were bad times
Many were good

Benefit of hindsight
Comes all too late
Living life as it comes
Deciding one’s fate

Think how different things were
Not who’s to blame
But each generation
Keeps saying the same
