Eight Hundred Years

Eight hundred years and how have we progressed?
The city of the affluent and the depressed
Eight hundred years and have we moved on?
The poverty and squalor has it all gone

Eight hundred years and how do we proceed?
With care not to succumb to greed
Eight hundred years is a long time to last
With everything that has gone on in the past

I do believe that the job we are doing is good
Correcting our errors the way that we should
Bringing forward the good and grace of mankind
Leaving the poverty and hatred behind

In eight hundred years where will be?
Hopefully living in peace and harmony,
