The Changing Face of Rebellion

Not so many years ago I revelled in rebellion, Derided seniors In sportsmobiles, Comfortable bellies on Wheels. Waistcoat Fillers. Surreptitious Pint spillers. But now I sit and scoff At youth and all its Awkward agonising Over lack of truth. Merrily I mow the lawn And curse because I Can't get my wellies on. And my wife orders me To buy a larger pair. And I cry 'No!' and She groans and I ignore Her as I turn the telly on And I revel in my rebellion.
