teens rising

Written by: Milton Toran

getting through to a teen,
is truly a task from hell;
a smack across the lips,
could land your butt in jail!

with heads thicker than concrete,
tell 'em left and they'll go right;
all we want is what's best for them,
why is it such a fight?!

a new day has risen,
parenting's a difficult job;
drilling the skull of a teenager,
is like water on a door knob!

society's a different planet,
beyond our mortal door;
if i ever sassed my parents,
my teeth would be on the floor!
