Old people… Phew!!!

As luck would have it,

I have something

to outrage about,

my grandfather,

bless his gentle soul,

despises me sometimes,

we all know them,

the Hammurabi generation

of archived, decrepit folks,

begrudging our freedom

forever discontent

with our ‘generational’ hubris

“I had two kids, when I was about

your age.”

I was married, with a house and responsibilities when I was 25.”

Look at you,

how proud you are!

as if surrendering

to peer pressure

and plain old bullying

suddenly became

an achievement.
