    Elegy / Once Upon A Time

    When all the laughter dies in sorrow
    And our tears have risen to a flood
    When all the wars have found a cause
    In human wisdom and in blood

    Do you think they’ll cry in sadness?
    Do you think the eye will blink
    Do you think they’ll curse the madness
    Do you even think they’ll think?

    When all the great galactic systems
    Sigh to a frozen halt in space
    Do you think there will be some remnant
    Of beauty of the human race

    Do you think there will be a vestige
    Or my sniffle; my cosmic tear
    Do you think a greater thinking thing
    Will give a damn
    that we were ever here?

    Poem recited before the instrumental by Robert Lamm

    In literature, an elegy (from the Greek word for “lament”) is a mournful, melancholic or plaintive poem, especially a funeral song or a lament for the dead.
