Generations


Ancient papery lips rasp wisdom
An inconvenience borne resolutely
By those who will not stoop to listen

Young, emboldened lips spout truth heedlessly
An inconvenience and exasperation
For those who will not stoop to listen

Our tainted lips hurl knowledge
And it's more than inconvenient
That our children stop to listen

There's a wry wisdom here that appeals to me. Well done.
