The Moment You Take A Snapshot It Is Out Of Date #11

They explore Europe in a motor car
Driving and stopping and getting out and
Storming the turrets of a hundred old stone castles
Feeling dizzy as they climb winding staircases
Saying this was here then and look at it now and
Look at all this that used to be and look at it now
See how it looks now in this time of motor cars
And it is all there, and nothing can stop them until
Until someone loses their hat in the wind and
They all lose heart, realising they can’t get it back
Even though they live in the time of motor cars
And perhaps they are not ready for this after all.
