Poisoned Generation

Life may not be rosy as a bed of putty,
Ne’ertheless, it’s at least bearable and good,
In place of ashes, soon shall come beauty,
It all began in the house nasty word here and there as well as rude,
All ’ cause I wanted the cow to milk, to do some duty,

Thinking as well, my own life to live earning my own booty,
Living free as a bird, a lovely mate in my arms wishing to be understood,
On my own property, doing as I
