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.
