For You to Eat

We are teenagers

and not strangers

to this world

that’s hurled

in our face

the human race

hurting us

and spurting us

onto this planet

you bet

we’re alive

and we’ll thrive

when you die

it’s no lie

we’re the next generation

and contamination

is not in us

it’s lush

the way we go

so we’re in the know

about it

come hear us shout it

we’ll get it done

the job is fun

to us

we won’t fuss

as long as we get paid

that rules $ aid

from the dawn of time

our time

not yours

life’s no hors d’oeuvres

for you to eat.
