I'm Appalled! ! ! Hubby

I'm Appalled:

At most young people today…
Disrespecting our past away…
No respect to the elderly who ride…
The bus…
Rosa Park arrested for us…
Emmett Till floating low…
Cicero City we could not go…
Now…that we go to and fro…
Doors and light we knock ‘em low…
Breaking signs marching out of line…
Young people doing this over time…
I'm appalled…at it all…
Youngster's sagging and lagging…
Education dragging…
Their history being forgotten…
They need to be piggy-backing…
They are truly much loved…
By us and God above…
Young people open your minds…
Your hearts…
Stop living in the dark…
And robbing our elderly on the bus…
And in the park…

    Don't worry they will be old someday. And in bittersweet sarcasm someone will be putting them down
    for being old. (Report) Reply

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
