Birth of a Generation
a wiser generation passed
we knew it wasn't meant to last
this overlooked, we took for granted
full of life and deemed enchanted
millions of the stepping stones
frail frames and aching bones.
they gave us what we will remember
kneading doughy hearts to tender
built to stand the test of time
always out to find the dime
and save it for the generation
next in line to lead the nation.
