Old Enough To Remember

In a time when decadence,
Is more pertinent to substance...
When substance 'had' made a difference.
With a relevance to many and was respected,
And made more sense as had been intended...
Than anything else,
Expressing content...
There are days those realize,
An aging has come for them to recognize.
And being caught by surprise by a time that flies,
Has left many unable or refusing to admit...
They have arrived at the stage of senior citizenship.

'These kids today aren't what they use to be.'

~Kids?
Which kids are you talking about? ~

'The ones in their 30's and 40's.
And some in the 50's are foolish too.
Doing their best trying to keep up with the rest of them.'

~If you don't mind me asking...
Just how OLD 'are' you? ~

'Old enough to remember when...
Don't worry about it.
I just remember things, that's all.'
