Remember causes

and affectations of effect on war

in cities now gone five-star?

 

Remember social action

sitting in smoke-filled rooms with Nescafe activists

and battered women with no teeth and less hope?

 

Remember death

when it belonged to rock stars

and people your mother knew?

 

Remember money

and how it wasn’t going to concern you

until you learnt the golden rule and its defensible limits?

 

And do you remember when the penny dropped

that the personal was the political

and you found out you had to change?

 

And you decided to forget the revolution?
