Generations

by Laura W. Haywood

 

The baby boomers invented sex,
rebellion,
pot.
Not.

Their generation's the most unusual ever
to come a-
long.
Wrong.

They were unique and independent, of
brave ideals
full.
Bull.

They thought that they would change the world
in deed and
dress.
Yes.

And now, surprise, they're getting old; they thought
youth would en-
dure.
Sure.

They loudly speak of menopause, as youth
flies out the
door.
Bore.

They bombard us with reports of what
to them is
new.
True.

We're sick and tired of always having
them in our
sight.
Right.

And heaven help us, right behind them's Gen-
eration
X.
Vex.

And you can bet your bottom dollar that X
in turn will
whelp.
Help.
