My Favourite Things

classroomAntibiotics and prescription glasses
Polio vaccines and food for the masses
Indoor plumbing and reading and writing
These are a few of my favourite things

Free education and books by the dozen
Women’s right to choose whether to have children
Emancipation of human beings
These are a few of my favourite things

Microwave ovens and soft toilet paper
Freedom of creed and a chance to discover
Black holes, galaxies, charmed quarks and superstrings
These are a few of my favourite things

When a fool brays
When TV sings
Of past golden days
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad
