‘The Youth of Today’ [unfinished]

Look around

surrounded by the

fantastic world of plastic

everything you want

to backdrop of financial crashes

all we see are ripples left from

where people made splashes

and the price of life keeps rising

‘til all your world is what cash is

with hungry babies crying

politicians whining,

pointing fingers and lying

lost time in

chaotic minds from

straight lines

that led astray

kept in files by stupid lies

they’ve become reckless in ingestion

bending perception

with tenuous tendencies

for chemical remedies

slurping despair

and burping up cares

nothing new

start slippin’ and sigh screw the system

light another two

find needless reasons to cleave and argue

all the things you thought they’d do

jaded generation lost youth

searching for proof of all they thought they knew

willing for change but afraid to say they’re scared

willing for change but deranged and unprepared
