Listen to the Kids – A Poem


The Dopamine Queen

It’s not the first heartbreak
It’s the first knee scrape

Not graduation day,
But kindergarten picture day

We’re failing the children, the babies, the kids
And they’re growing up into lost misguided shits

That’s right, I’m talking about you and me
We are a wreck, assholes, or both almost guaranteed

I don’t know anyone who isn’t either dealing with their mental health chronically
Or wearing a maga hat unironicaly

But we can change this, it can be fixed
It’s not even that hard, the problem is this

For too long we have taught children to be quiet
Hoping for most of them to listen and be compliant

I’m here to tell you we have it wrong
The answer has been children all along

It’s time for them to speak up and us to listen
Every parent, teacher, doctor and politician

Sit your ass down the kids need to speak
