Each generation

Accepts what it finds when it comes in as being normal

Which is how things move on

The current generation finds the Internet just a tool

Global materialism as how it is

Shopping as a major pastime

And old people as silent spectators

No more idea that the old have any wisdom

In fact no more old involved in modern life except to be a drain with their pension needs

Walled up out of sight on the edge of town

On the edge of society

Shame really one day we might wonder how things were

Might also wonder if they knew anything we've forgotten

Maybe the last days of Rome are always like this
