  1. The Birds Flying over an empty field

    the black birds
    flying over the meadow
    filled with wild flowers
    in a spring day
    are lonely

    they are looking for their friends
    the humans who alas are no more
    the birds don’t know what happened
    they are birds after all

    but they know
    the cities are quiet
    and all the humans are gone
    where they went
    no one knows or cares

    and so humanity fades away
    into the dustbin of history
    yet another master race
    alive no more

    with a little help from my friends

    Everyone says that
    with a little help from one’s friends
    one can achieve one’s dreams
    with a little help from one’s friends
    you can be whom you are meant to be

    but in this mean old world of ours
    almost no one has real friends
    friendship is now just another commodity
    bought and sold on the open market

    and so many people
    have no real friends left
    no one to talk to
    and no one who cares

    that is the way it is
    in our hyper competitive world
    everyone has hundreds of virtual friends
    fake friends are everywhere
    and few have any real friends
