ANOTHER COUNTRY HEARD FROM

ANOTHER COUNTRY HEARD FROM

(An older generation)

This shouldn’t affect you or I,

As bloggers, we always try…

To say our piece

Without undo grease,

Our educated minds fly!

When did schools stop teaching grammar,

Leaving English learned in the slammer…

Is penmanship gone

By a dance and a song,

‘Though we still work on a kid’s stammer?

Kids in sales moan

When told to use a telephone…

They’d rather text

And E-mail the next

Contact from office or home.

Reality doesn’t matter

For politicians, shielded from splatter…

Human nature ignored

Complicates the “get on board”,

Human lab rats no longer matter!

Violence fills our streets

While babies lose their heartbeats…

Forget “Tom and Jerry”—

Of video games be wary,

And the weirdos who share hateful Tweets!

    I so agree. My son does not bring home text books anymore. They are all in his iPad – given to him by his school. And tests are given on the pad. scary.

    It is worrisome. Hateful tweets, violent movies and games, marketing pushing things on kids, making them dissatisfied with their phone, their toy, their life.

    Wasn’t that way when we were kids…not really…it was okay to see Tom & Jerry…but not okay to feed that secret kind of violence to kids. But marketing? It’s always been there–just not as intense, or so it seems!
