A- Attitude Adjustment

a highly contagious virus
runs rampant through schools
striking adolescents

infecting their mouths
and rolling their eyes

cringing adults
shake their heads why
spitting out no….

forgetting their time
adjusting attitudes.

The adults were the same way when they were kids.

That's how it works: Each generation is frustrated with the previous one and exhasperated at the following one.

what a wonderful way to start off the challenge!

enjoyed your thoughts on this and it is true what Bubba says but, the school I went to when I was a child/teen did not tolerate any vulgarities. Of coarse there were some children that tried but not very many.

verbal diarrhoea seems to be more tolerated now and personally don't like it. Especially coming out of the mouth of babes.

good luck with with the challenge!

Oh, the teens. I so remember! I (barely) survived it, and so did my kids (miraculously). Wowzers! You are walking the Hero's Walk right now, my dear!
