Intergenerational warfare

so I was thinking about

how the Millennials, Xennials, Xers

and whoever comes nexters

were fighting with the Boomers

or is that just in Australia

and I wondered if

it was a media beat-up

a political stunt

to distract

from the real issues of inequality

and then I thought

or

is it as old as time

for the younger gen

to fight

against the ancient ones

wanting to usurp and change?

  1. I think everything is a fucking distraction from the challenge of climate change! My poor 17 yr old son can’t BELIEVE the politicians aren’t making better choices for him and his generation…

  2. “Every generation
    Blames the one before
    And all of their frustrations
    Come beating on your door.”

      1. Your post was poignant. I try to bear in mind generational differences before I go off on the younger folks. I don’t want to start a conversation with “When I was your age” or “Back in my day, we….” 🙂
