Yesterday’s future

But, in the army of yesterday’s dreams,
Mickey had love and shining cooking pots
And Joe and Pete, with bellies full, were big shots
but, in the army of yesterday’s dreams

Mickey had love and shining cooking pots
with wife and clever kids that called his name
where now he stands in rain and blameless shame
Mickey had love and shining cooking pots

with wife and clever kids that called his name
but, in the army of discarded dreams,
no man from north or south is what he seems
with wife and clever kids that called his name

But, in the army of yesterday’s dreams,
Mickey had love and shining cooking pots
And Joe and Pete, with bellies full, were big shots
but, in the army of yesterday’s dreams
