Young and Numb

burning newspaper

Youth today are not okay

But they are okay to stay

Content with what’s what

Content to tut tut

At society in flames

Video games

And working late

To segregate

Their reality from


Freedom to ignore

The bloodshed and gore

International and national

Oppression as crowd control

The generation

Raised by Play Station

Playing at adulthood

Sims in their neighborhood

Neighbors unstable

Devils under tables

Under attack with stress

Money, family, work, lack of rest

Politics, parenting, religion

Disasters have us as sitting pigeons

This stress is for the birds

This disaster has me at a loss of words
