(the) Children Of Today

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

They're not here to revisit,
The gaslamp.
They're not living to revisit,
Those cobblestone roads.
They're not here to revisit,
A living in the past.
But old folks want them kept,
Forever to last.

They're not here to revisit,
The singing sad songs.
They're not living to revisit,
Who did what to do wrong.
They're not here to revisit,
What had gone on...
From Sun up to Sun down,
With a boring to prolong.

(The) Children of today,
Don't have minds restricted to limits.
Or have a kept interest...
In times that don't exist.
(The) Children of today,
Don't keep old topics high on their lists.
Or think of them to value,
If they can't get it quick.
To be downloaded in a shown 'selfie' pic.
(The) Children of today,
Are mentally prepared and equipped...
But,
Many people show them incompetence...
Instead of leadership.

They're not here to revisit,
The gaslamp.
They're not living to revisit,
Those cobblestone roads.
They're not here to revisit,
A living in the past.
Or who did what when these times speed fast.
(The) Children of today,
Don't have old topics on top of their lists.
Or think of them to value,
As their values have shifted.
(The) Children of today,
Are mentally prepared and equipped...
But,
Many people show them incompetence...
Instead of leadership.

Are mentally prepared and equipped... But, Many people show them incompetence... Instead of leadership. You are right. They are all different. Thisis their time and not ours.
Stellar penning, Lawrence...Your close-out line is impacting, spot-on, and so sadly true.... ~FjR~
