I met the old guard. He’s a nice fellow.
He’s well read, educated, and quite the story teller.
But I’m not quite sure he’s grasping
the new generation’s passion
He says tone it down.
We say “no sir”
Just like a youth’s supposed ta.
He says you should know your history
So you’re not repeating everything
But 70% of the world won’t listen to me
does it matter if I know where I came from?
I say I’d love to have time to read books.
I care where I came from. I google it. Look.
If you took the time critiquing me and
spent it filling out Wikipedia entries
Then I might actually learn where I came from.
