Kids when they talk today

Make but little sense.

They can’t express a thought,

In any case or tense.

Every second phrase is:

‘I mean’ or ‘like you know’.

They lack sufficient words

Just to say ‘Hello’!

Language is a marker

Of scholarship in bloom.

Without it we’re mere animals

Aimless in the gloom.

Will our children’s children

Communicate in ‘you knows’?

Books just fuel for campfires,

No poetry or prose?

Like, progress just happens.

I mean, why worry? Let it flow!

What’s the use of language?

Like, I mean, you know….
