Don’t Argue

Don’t argue with one

That clearly knows less than you

Grandpa’s wise advice

Sadly I forgot his words

And scuffled with a buffoon


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Forgotten (Acrostic)

Forced into uselessness

Our society deems them a nuisance

Retiring them to the annals of history

Gone are the days they were revered

Only a culture of arrogance would discard their wisdom

Trusting instead in the coldness of technology

This is our way, leaving them out in the cold

Entombing them before their time

Never seeing beyond the length of their years
