Complaint poem #6
(by Mitch Hopper with slight
tweaking by Jackie Jackson)
We're at your mercy, young turks!
you see us old turds as old jerks!
with your buzz words throughout
us nerds never doubt
your language is made up of smirks.
It gives us ol' seniors the blues
to see how you youngsters abuse
our English so strong
and what makes it so wrong
is you can't even tie your own shoes!
My tech skills I know I'll outlive –
dear friends, you will surely forgive
but we oldies yet strive
to do more than survive
while you kiddies need hi-tech to live!
2021 Jacqueline Jackson
