Hippies and Yippies morphed into Yuppies
their minds transformed into guppies.
Their picayune thought processes
~ add up to zero ~
in the manifest streams of time.
Their feel good attitude corrupted
by blind ambition masked by raconteur.
Their revolutionary expression 'Come on and rise up'
replaced by 'I've got mine too bad about you.'
Streams of Time become Rivers of Time
as the future bleeds out.
What core values did this generation
exemplify and pass on?
Civil Rights, Personal Freedom,
human rights and common civility
~ or ~ rampant materialism,
rigid religious fervor and fascism?
The Rivers of Time will manifest the truth.
Ah the power of time!
