The Gap

Generation gap

The Gap

He lived in the past
And we in the present
He talked of yesteryear
And we of today

His preoccupation was in
What had happened before
Ours was in what was unfolding

To him the Past was all important
To us it was the Present that mattered
To him we were a problem of the present
To us he was a victim of the past
To him football’s glorious days had passed
To us football’s glory was still nascent

Together we were neither wrong nor right
The future, we all could not discuss
Because it was beyond us
It was a question of generation gap
And who will close this gap?
(11/6/91)
