Is the Baby Boomer Generation Past it?


Baby Boomer Generation

Is the Baby Boomer Generation Past it? – Has life passed us by?
Well, I don’t know.  But I am wondering…

We used to take acid; now it’s antacid.
We listened to The Doors; now we may not hear a knock on the door.

We joined the ACLU; now it’s the AARP.
Instead of a Love-In, it’s a Drive-Thru.

No more growing pot; just developing a pot.
Gone from Woodstock to chicken stock.

Never mind third parties; it’s often about third opinions.
No more folk-rock; sometimes, maybe, folk dancing.

Not listening to the Beatles; just spraying for beetles.
Burning bras?  Can’t even figure out how to burn a CD.  Whatever that is.

Used to say “Outasight!”  Now we practically are.
We don’t wear moo moos; just drink skimmed milk.

Not dressed in tie-dye–but some of our friends have died.
Yep.  Every now and then, I realize that some time must have passed.

    Ah, but think of all the fun we had Andrew. The current generation can only look on with envy. 😀

    Very witty as always. If only every generation left such an imprint on society!

    Sorry it took so long to reply, Andrew. Time has a way of slipping past. As others have said, we left a footprint. As you might say, “We used to say fuck-it-all, now it’s Geritol”. Finally, remember – the alternative to growing old is to die young, so I guess I’ll hang around for a while more.
