Youth by R.Kane
He slouches with affected attitude;
a teenage gansta wannabe,
is this fashion or fact?
Clutching the waistband of voluminous pants
striving mightily for the ground,
Boxers proudly displayed for our perusal.
No matter how much middle age spread,
he’ll still be able To don those pants
and exclaim, “look, they still fit”.
Tales of misogyny, violence and materialism
squeaks from his not so personal headsets,
it seems no one sings anymore.
Quick draw on his cell phone
oblivious to what bystanders may hear,
guess I’m an unwilling eavesdropper.
Gold teeth and encrusting bling bling
must be oh so of the moment.
But that sure don’t mean it’s attractive!
Is that meanness he projects real,
or just a studied part of his style?
God I hope this fashion passes.
