Inanity coupled with much mundanity
drains creative vitality from the minds of children.
Bored kids, raised by televisions, make warped decisions.
Viewed daily by the hour, fatality becomes ordinary.
The insanity of much of humanity
causes profanity to erupt at an early age.
Integrity is not taught by crude interjections.
Reality: kids mimic adults without permission.
Urbanity is foreign; brutality, common.
In modern childhood formality is misunderstood
as mere rules and likewise humility is worthless.
Laxity reigns with spouts of parental volcanity.
Children have a mentality and morality
that would rattle our great-grandparents’ false teeth.
Our children are wiser than their peers of yesteryears,
re: street-smarts, fits and starts, broken hearts, and body parts.
