The Sky of 1977

From Old time photos of yesteryear.

One day, when I’m old and grey,
Think I’ll just fade away,
And rest in the afterglow of your smile

That year was so wondrous,
Life was not so ponderous,
I’d like to go back to visit-just for a while

But you are so far away
You were never here to stay
By the time you come back I’ll be gone

And you won’t be the same
Time’s played its game
Another hundred years moved on

A fleeting moment in time,
The realisation of my prime
The start of my wonder years true

Now when I look up at heaven,
I can’t see the Sky of ‘77
It’s faded, died out, shot through.

Today I look to the Sky of ‘19
And I see that it’s still blue
A pale reminder of what’s been
Now a picture of lies the left grew.

    If you want a definitive point at which Australia officially started going down the toilet, it would have to be 1972 with the election of Whitlam. The 1970s still had a kind of innocence to them but by the mid 80’s the rot was really noticeable.

    Nice one, Steve.
    After the 70’s, Aussie lifestyle life started going down hill and the refugee gates opened.

      Whitlam did not want the first wave of Vietnamese refugees because they were nationalists fleeing communism, and they were not going to vote Labor. (((Fraser))) brought the Muslim Lebanese. Although there was already a trickle, Amanda Vandstone, under Howard brought the hordes of sub-Saharan Africans, with a good deal of help from Catholic and Anglican ‘charities’. Because you know, we sprinkled some African Howler Monkeys with Holy Water and they are good Christian people now.

      Ha, it’s like watching a sci-fi movie depiction of an ideal Aussie future, except it’s our past. An Australia long gone……….

    Yep. Al. Grasby, was his minister pushing all this multicultural crap. Australians were not realy sold on it then, but they were looking for the nirvana that would accompany the tripe. We thought it would be more people with a Christian belief who would add to our culture, not some witch doctor escaped from the bowls of Hati or some neanderathal from the sands of the middle east

    I had a Valiant that was the same model as the one in the foreground.
    Jeez I miss that car….
