Nothing mattered anymore,
Nothing made the rich less poor,
Nothing fed the minds of none,
Just like it always had before.
Nothing was the same again,
Not after the listening hour,
When all the children stopped playing their games,
And sat down to enjoy their supper,
But the radio was heard and the frequency up,
And all they could do was hope,
That no matter what came out of their mouths,
The cause of her death was life itself.
