In Remembrance of Futures Passed

What happened to my future?
It seemed so bright and clean
With towers of glass and steel
Rising above me in shining splendor
While people, happy people,
Went to their business
In electric cars
And everyone wore a computer
And we were all happy
Or at least content
No empty stomachs
And people on the Moon...
...and Mars
And the Solar System was our backyard
And the Milky Way our neighborhood...
