Creative Writing – The Greatest Generation

The Greatest Generation

The play of children

Reflects today

What we do in battle

They do in play

We think we can limit

The things that they hear

While acting on jealousy

Hate, greed, and fear

Little ones fully know

Our morals are flawed

They don’t need a show

They don’t need to be awed

Babes comprehend

What we won’t confess

It will be them

Cleaning up this mess
