the hard won prosperity
brought us by the greatest generation
has been bled dry
holes deliberately bored
into the chest
to be sure the heart
bleeds out
a cardiac ruin
starving the body of the nation
of the life blood’s benefits

the greatest generation’s
the country they fortified
and sustained
has been sabotaged
by their own children
the least generous generation
that was called the baby boom
for good reason it now seems
as they’ve blown up the system
that made our union worthwhile
and buggered all tomorrow’s babies
