Teen Gene

TEEN GENE (to my dear daughters) Hard it has been To live as a Teen Dubbed Drama Queen Blame it on Gene! So many issues! One sure prevails, That is: how long should I wear my nails!? How to file- round or square, polish- red, black or green? It's of vital importance, blame it on Gene. My hair, of you I am obsessively fond So painful to live as a natural blonde Boys like it, girls hate me, get nasty and mean As they are possessed by the wicked Teen Gene! The most consuming obsession is to fit in, They say it’s a stage of ego-maniac Gene Tweeter, Facebook, Instagram-powerful means It’s all about selfies of narcissistic Teens! My mother, oh brother, cannot understand Keeps referring to lifestyle of her native land With no cars, no computers, not even bananas Mom, don't pile your childhood misery on us! Well, lack of bananas did not not intervene With mom’s same notorious wicked Teen Gene!
