"Transformation"

Brian R. Baer


People change in many ways, it's often plain to see,
That time can mold the best of plans to fit society.
A young mind's always open, for anyone to sway.
Makes me wonder how many minds I've messed up today.

Douglas was a young man, much smarter than his peers;
Listened to by everyone, in spite of his years.
He dug on protests and thought them a blast;
Yet, grew to be the general in charge of the draft!

People change in many ways, it's often plain to see,
That time can mold the best of plans to fit society.


Curley was an indian lad, a jolly Navajo.
Planted crops and went to school, as he watched them grow.
He spoke only of peace, from Nome to Tijuana.
Got busted four years later, for growing marijuana.

People change in many ways, it's often plain to see,
That time can mold the best of plans to fit society.
When Charlie was a little boy, he loved astronomy;
Had a telescope he used to watch the stars so free.
Why he could name a dot of light, others could hardly see,
And now he is a sniper with the First Infantry!

People change in many ways, it's often plain to see,
That time can mold the best of plans --- to fit society,
To fit society...
