People Today - Poem by Leah Ross

Are to tightly wound that I'll say
Have a frown for a smile
Can't turn it around
Have to be serious 24/7
Don't know what it is
The gama rays or electromagnetic frequencies
Frying the brain cells
People get mad for next to nothing
Take offense easily at everything/anything even a poem
Insane ridiculous it most certainly is
Start brawls anywhere over a word said
Would rather shoot first
Cry wolf think it's funny
Can't laugh at one's self
Take things with a grain of sea salt either
Internalize we must everything little thing
Maybe it's the times the society we live
Or to much TV married with children
That is causing the brain to miss fire
What's life without laughter? ? ? ?
One has to laugh sometimes just let loose
