Grounded

Rating: 4.9
You "adults", you exasperate me
with your evasions and delays.
You're going to have to change
some of the ways that you behave.
You aren't doing your homework,
you haven't cleaned the planet,
You aren't standing up to bullies,
you haven't been sharing your things,
and you're even playing with guns.
And you're pretending everything's ok.
You were taught better than this.
Sorry, but.. You're all grounded people.
And hand over those phones!

I love this poem. Even though I have been an for quite some time, I have kept alive the ideals I had when I was in my teens. I thoroughly hope that more young people do keep their ideals throughout life and do not let them be swept away by " adults" who failed to live up to their own ideals

Great Poem! You tell 'em! A lot of talk, but those that make the rules for others are the first to brake them. I totally agree with you, we certainly have no right to destroy this gorgeous, generous blue planet. And those that do should be exiled to outer space and yes, with their phones taken away. This poem certainly deserves to be, Poem of the Day! Congratulations

some " adults" allegorically I think it's the some superpower countries are playing in this world with their innovative destructive weapons and for their every single misdeed suffering the third worlds. The superpower countries are pretending they are with third worlds countries but it's really very sad that all are wicked grounded!

How conveniently we forget when we growup and become. Our behavior towards life, nature and other creatures becomes very indifferent. You poem is a perfect reminder of these facts. Loved the way you wrote..5***
