The Meaning Of ‘Until’

Neither the French nor the South Korean elections mean anything at all. Nothing will change until – well, until the person or persons who have the power to change things decide it’s time. The newly elected president of South Korea, Moon Jae-in, may not be a lunatic, but Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea is, or at least would like us to believe he is. The First Lady of North Korea is named Ri Sol-ju, so the peninsula has both a Moon and a Sun. Maybe the stars are aligned and we will all dance to the music of the spheres, but if not, things will continue as is until.

Nothing changes much until
It does, so obvious, but still
It’s things like this that blur the mind
To thinking that the world is kind
To those who sit and wait their turn
It’s then too late, they never learn
