I am a senior and looking around I notice how the world has changed. My observation about today’s youngsters is described in this poem
THE YOUNG OF TODAY
I see them rushing everywhere,
For those around, they don’t care
Going past with a ‘Hi’ and ‘Bye’
‘Have no time’ they say with a sigh!
They run to catch a bus or a train
In the slush and dirt of the pouring rain
Their job’s at stake they seem to say
This is their life from day to day.
With one hand glued to their cellphone
They wait for the sound of the musical tone
Chatting away, not a moment to spare,
Looking neither here nor there.
Their thoughts are scattered everywhere
The kids at school, with none to care
What about food their thoughts go there
The cleaning routine there’s none to share
Throwing their hands at times in despair
Our life they say is beyond repair
The choices are several where could they go
They have to rush they cant go slow.
Yet they have a smile on their lips
They go about, swinging their hips
Their popular slogan, ‘Leave us alone
It’s our business. You mind your own’

Does youngsters’ behaviour bother you?
