Time Makes the Past Elusive
It is of no importance to youth,
World War ll, JFK or the Marx Brothers.
All the markers in my life,
Were in time, replaced by others.
Vietnam, draft cards, burning bras,
The events that shaped my views,
Mean little to the young now days,
Compared to Lindsey Lohan in the news.
Now the modern youth today,
Tattoo themselves for hip new charms…
Unaware my generation had parents,
Brandishing tattoos on their arms.
