Those Ungrateful Teenagers: An Elder's Viewpoint
Those ungrateful teenagers ~got a lot to learn 'bout life!
Hard work is something too good for 'em.
While I was young, we worked from sunrise to sunset;
Wasn't hardly no idle time in between.
Momma and Daddy labored in tobacco and cotton fields -
backs bent; sweat dripping from their brow, beneath a scorching sun -
hardly a pail of cool water to dip from...
Those ungrateful teenagers ~ don't know the value of a day's work.
Ain't got no idea 'bout how to make or save a dollar,
but spend one, now that's another story!
I'de love for just one of 'em to ...
Don'T Jump In
Let these words be a life-line to you ~
A rope that pulls you from that icy precipe.
Please, don't jump in!
Don't allow Satan to win your soul
Or rob you ~ or else you'll remain eternally frozen
In a place where the fire never ceases and
the worm never dies.
