The old way of doing things
Meant simplicity and ease
Not thinking hard or doing work
Made life as simple as pie
It wasn't that long ago
That a day could be spent
Doing as one please
Without a single regret

Today we are rushing
To a point none of us can see
Trying to beat everyone else
At a game that has yet to be invented
In our time the speed has changed
And made everything around us stay the same
Tomorrow is another day to do more
So we can end up with less than we had before

No doubt
A well-expressed sentiment. I wonder if it might work better through metaphor, though, like my (much-maligned!) "Flannel Blankets (Kangaroo)". They're kindred.

Nice work.
