Awakening Alright - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

They hurt, as if to say
we have been entertained.
It was the time and age
when a young boy decides
to take the plunge
if it is possible at all.
It was, but only just.
There never was
a bang, discharge of fireworks,
today, I think it may
have been the urgency,
and, like the crowds
before the summer sale
they stayed behind
and never saw the light of day.
