A Father’s Tired Refrains....written by bags123

I hear the music played today,
then wonder why they bother.
Plead with my kids to turn it down,
like my departed Father.
It’s funny how the more things change,
the more they stay the same
Two generations can’t compare
the notes they’ve both sustained.
Perhaps it’s in the air they breathe,
or junk food they’ve been eating --
But I declare, the sounds I hear
resemble children beating
On pots, and pans, or toilet lids,
mistreating proper function,
Those instruments placed in their hands
Abused without compunction.
It could be human hearing’s changed,
deranged by mass delusions
From institutions now in league
to prompt our youth’s confusion.
It’s funny how the more things change,
the more they stay the same.
I guess it’s part of growing up
with Father’s tired refrains.


well hey, thanks again everybody! :grin: enjoy the BEAUTIFUL!! spring weather! :hello: :grin:
inside each soul there is music...let the music play..
