Youth Will Have It's Fling This Well May Be

To some noise can be music that's how it does appear
Impairment to their sense of hearing such people never fear
Some young people have their loud car stereos blaring when they are out on the town
Is this their way of attention seeking as the streets they drive up and down
The stress of such noise in close proximity to their ear drums must be great
Many of them will be wearing hearing aids in a not too distant date
Many old sayings from the distant past to them have a truthful ring
And one of them that comes to mind is 'youth will have it's fling'
But for playing very loud music and noise pollution there can be a price to pay
For loss of hearing in mid life that's life as some do say
Youth will have it's fling this well may be but their health they do not spare
As they drive in the town on saturday night their car stereos blare
What to them is music to another is noise one's weed is another's rose
In mid life they may be wearing hearing aids that's life one must suppose.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
