Who Could Had 'thunk It' - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Today's youth are heard to say,
'People don't get me.'
With a doing little wanting pay.
'People don't get me.'
Many seem to have no thoughts,
Other than to text.
Downloading 'selfies'.
And exposing nakedness.

Who could had 'thunk it',
That we did this to the youth.
Who could had 'thunk it',
That we took their brains to neuter.
Who could had 'thunk it',
That we did this to the youth.
Who could had 'thunk it'.
Who could had 'thunk it'.

Today's youth are heard to say,

And exposing nakedness.

Who could had 'thunk it',
That we did this to the youth.
Who could had 'thunk it',
That we took their brains to neuter.
Who could had 'thunk it',
That we did this to the youth.
Who could had 'thunk it'.
Who could had 'thunk it'.

Who could had 'thunk it',
That we did this to the youth.
Who could had 'thunk it',
That their minds have been junked.
Who could had 'thunk it',
That we did this to the youth.
With heads like pumpkins,
Pumped and funked.
With thoughts to be dumped in one bucket.
