News Weekly, April 18, 2020

THE BIG PICTURE, C21

The last adults are ageing
And leaving politics;
The children of the boomers
(Those legislating tricks!)
Are ruling out the human,
To accommodate their kicks.

Old soldiers all are fading,
Who knew when freedom called;
The children of the boomers
(Who’ve pouted, stamped and bawled)
Know nothing but a play-school …
Their liberated world!

The out-flanked Church is grieving,
Aghast at policies:
The children of the boomers
(Now toying with The Keys)
Will blast the powers given them –
Until they’re on their knees.

Andrew Huntley
