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.
