When is it time for me?
A life as dutiful son
Faithful husband

Caring father…

Born at a time
When so many others
Came into being

Gave lesser opportunities

Boomers get blamed
For many sins…but it’s
Largely that we didn’t want
The lives of our
Mothers and fathers…

To become prematurely old

They were touted…called
The “Greatest Generation”
Their leaders led us astray
And we said…
“Hell no, we won’t go!”

Selfish? No…sensible

We didn’t believe
The self-serving lies
Why should we die

For their mistakes?

They had the lives
Of leisure…at the end…
We see a world of
Everlasting war…
Their world still has teeth

Will we see the end?

The planet handed to us
We see it dying…
And yet their false prophets
Say full speed ahead…
Until our Mother Earth is dead?

Fuck it! It’s time for me!
