THE LONG DECADE

It was a long, long decade.
Everyone's tempers were frayed.
Everyone was dismayed.
Nobody got laid.
Every party had a raid.
It was a long, long decade.
Everyone's kids were afraid.
Teenagers owned switch-blades.
Football crowds stood and prayed.
People were beginning to fade.
It was a long, long decade.
Nobody was well paid.
Everyone was a bit staid.
Nobody had it made.
It was a long, long decade.
People drank lemonade.
Everyone's teeth were decayed.
Nothing was ever home-made.
Teenagers played the arcade.
It was a long, long decade.
Everyone tried to evade.
That's what everyone say -ed.
Diana met Mohammed Al Fayed.
People practised bad trade.
It was a long, long decade.
Every bitch was spayed.
Every donkey brayed.
Every train was delayed.
People sat in the shade.
It was a long, long decade.
Everyone was surveyed.
Everyone wore pomade.
People wanted accolade.
Nobody made the grade.
It was a long, long, long, long,
long, long, long, long, long, long decade.

The decimal system to use

How to count on each hand,
And that way we don't get confused
