We talk so much about entitled
Our entitled youth,
No need to work,
No need to learn,
Life is a smorgasboard of offers.
There is choice in what they study
There is choice in if they work
Each night and morn there is food galour
Clothes doth magically appear
And worn out ones disappear
Every so often rooms get cleaned out
So new stuff can appear
But I wonder how our youth would go
If it was all to disappear?
What if, what happens for the few
Happened for the masses?
What if the safety net evaporated?
How would our youth handle
Coming home one day
The fridge, freezer and pantry bare
The fruit bowl mysteriously empty?
How would they handle finding food?
Would they even know how to get it?
And if they could miraculously get money to go and buy it,
What would they do when they made it home?
Would they know how to cook it?
And what if there was no furniture
No bed to lie their head on
No computers or technlogy
No money left to play with
How would entitled youth survive?
What skills do they have to rely on?
An interesting experiement
And if this happened to me.
It’d take me about 3 months
To get the vege patch to thrive
So I guess that I’d be on a rapid weight loss diet.
