If the world was better in your youth,
and kids had much more sense;
if things once great have gone to shit,
and nothing makes much sense,
you only have yourself to blame:
your parenting did this.
How damned convenient it must be,
what ignorance and bliss,
to vainly praise your parents’ ways
and how well you turned out.
Explain to me the reason why,
because I have some doubt,
why nothing that you learned so well
you passed on to your kids,
and how, despite your efforts,
our whole future’s on the skids.
