the horror of the 70s

oh 70s! you led me into life
cherubic gold, pre-raphaelite like child
the sickly psychodelic double knife
it cut the cord, and everything went wild

the grown ups all danced naked round a fire
A woman's pubic hair was more her beard
the decade haute couture snubbed as a liar
and drugs made normal folk soft lumps of weird

and colours came like luminescent puke
and rhythms felt like fingers half in ears
and chocolate sold just like the thin white duke.
your parties taught us how to murder peers.
