Long Strange Trip

 

The flower children gone to seed

Bake brownies for the PTA

And give to liberals in need.

 

Their ponytails display some gray

And nothing tie-dyed ever fits

Despite the tofu and sorbet.

 

Now they are mocked as "hippie-crits"

By free-range children who refuse

To heed their parents' tired views

On love and peace and endless summer.

 

 

What a bummer.
