The Degeneration of the Generation

These days, everything you hear or see
At all places: on the land, air or at sea
Is a morbid manifestation of what our society is,
which makes you to conclude that ours is this?
The degeneration of our degeneration

Children are no longer obedient to their parents;
They are rude and discourteous to the elders;
At school, they dawdle and idle, wasting their talents.
How would these ragamuffins obey perfect orders?
The degeneration of our degeneration

Young boys and girls (on campus) even in high schools pick bad habits
They drink and gamble; they smoke and embrace pop- music,
Rag-tags, riff- raffs they are; they are the nit- wits
Alien culture they imbibe as other excesses make their heart sick
The degeneration of our degeneration

Transparent dresses are now in vogue
Mini- skirt, tight fitting clothes the female now wear
Abandons for good are the church and the mosque
At those who are modest, people now sneer and gear
The degeneration of our degeneration

Youths are incorrigible in their insatiable greed
Undergraduates want to bag certificates, so as to steal and loot
Mere worldlings like themselves, worldly people breed
When you tell them, “be sincere” you hear sincerity, my foot

Evil are the words that are now favoured by man
As all is poised to (in) advertently follow
Through indecent, pornographic films embraces by crooks
Many are greatly misled, as they are by bad books, magazine and internet
Quite a degeneration of this degeneration

The older ones even do not fare better, they are sybaritic.
In them, there are many a go- better
In matters related to religious or faith, they fatter
All what they crave after is just bread and butter!
The degeneration of our degeneration

How sad it is about this our generation:
Righteousness is now considered as civilization
Morality is today a source of derision and humiliation
Decency, modesty in dressing is being subjected to condemnation
Ah! What a degeneration of this our own degeneration!

Injustice is presently raised to be raised to the peak of elevation
Sins and crimes are what people hail in glorification
The “culture of nakedness” is now a celebration
Hypocrisy in (wo)men wins laurels and commendation.
What a scandalous degeneration of this “wasted generation”!

All theses I say dear readers:
It is not as if, I am better in character than you or the other
The fact remains that we are in this all together
Rather ponder on issues, and about me, do not bother.

Oh! The d-e-g-e-n-e-r-a-t-i-o-n of our d-e-g-e-n-e-r-a-t-i-o-n!
