Generation Gap

“Oh, the out-of style jacket,
those tacky scuffed shoes!”
Yes, the young say he’s weird
but they’ve dyed their hair blue.

They mock her babushka,
and say with a wink.
“What a funny old dress!”
but their hair is bright pink.

They say, “He’s so past it
and that tie, what a scream!”
Don’t know folks are grinning
’cause their hair’s aubergine.

I’ve dashed off this “colorful” verse as today’s contribution to National Poetry Month.
