    GENERATIONAL GAMES

    40 years separate us..
    New words, concepts dismiss the old
    As if they did not exist
    Denial of age
    Past history
    Differences
    Language and its uses
    Music and its melodies
    “This is how the world sees it”
    The words of today with no remembrance
    Or care of what was…
    What still is to some
    “Well it won’t come back
    Get over it…admit you are wrong
    Straightening means relaxing
    Not some hot comb”…
    “Well, maybe…but trust me
    When I say in a minute
    Either way , like Lorraine says
    Excuse me do you know who that is”
    This visionary from the past
    She says…”it mutilates.”.
    And
    I still say “straightening means the comb
    And Relaxing means the chemicals”
    “you never admit you are wrong”
    I walk away…not willing to play
    generational game
    again.

    The inherent truth is still the truth, no matter how you say it, it never gets old. I love what you're saying here, and the way you went about saying it. Great to read you again deepy.
