Assassin of youth

Come meet the assassin of youth-
Breath stinks! But he’s got swagger
Possessing the college kids- got them confused!

Come meet the assassin of youth-
Granddads thinking they are 22
Sweet talking minds in kind
The Jamaican – a stereotype

Come meet the assassin of youth
Barack on cloud 9
David didn't deny
Bill had a try
Tony it did inspire

Meet the assassin of youth.
