Generation of Mirrors


My generation lives in mirrors
We base our morals upon good features and fabulous hair
Bending over backwards for paper think bodies
and rock hard abs-
We'd do just about anything.
We breathe in smoke like it's the latest fashion,
drinking tequilla like it's water
We party as if these are the best years
We scream in triumph as if we've won
at the game of life
Boy do we have so much to learn

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
