things to come for us oldesters

Once upon a time we used to say this rhyme;
Piss shit corruptiion snot, 29 assholes
tied in a knot, yah rah lizard shit, 
God bless the 60's 
college generation and the pre ne anderthal
anticommunio anticonservative anticrass 
conspired 50's post war catlico/protestco/religico/allinco
class ignopostco dontknowco genreo class of procreastino
letitbeo, statisquos. Lest it be known that the willful winds of youthful change
be on their way to counter angst the powers that supposed to be. 
Frank, Tony, Bing, Johnny, Dean, Bobby, Elvis and Sammy rose to to heights
 of us universal but languished in antiquity when all was superficial. 
Stay in within the realm that is true and the music that it
heralds is more than blue. Topic is keen and u know what I mean,
as it all in the family regardless of poverty and greed. Look 
deep inside to the entrails u behold and garner yr questhoods as they're
expressed to your hoods. I am sick of people who hide in their shame, whose only desire is to gain from illfame. I speak from someone just side of white trash
who was given free knowledge knows that is quite rash!. College initially 
was out of my reach, but from my friends go for it, it's not what we preach.
Paperwork aplenty and lines unforgiving I pleaded, posed, placed until my
schedule was on target. Never before did I know such obeyance, to all before me regardless of surveyance. I did what I was told and was told what I did until both seemed the same. IU hater ie when people say this is/was the best thing I ever did in my life. Really? What about the things/places/people to come in yr life. Age is a wonder of the things that from which u have experienced and learned' then apply them to the future u have remaining; in all this is someone, anyone paying the least attention to what u r trying to say? And yes to date and I am sorry to say but have come to believ is just the way it is that, "Youth is wasted on the young". Love u and mimiss me in th final equation of the generational shift of things to come.
