My Generation

Are you one of them?

The faceless children of our generation

Forced to find an individual barcode

In the endless rows of a hypermarket

Are you alive?

Suffocated by the standards of a past

Pulled apart by the technological advance

Endlessly refreshing the webpage

Are you seeking happiness?

In the quagmire of tests and goals

Climbing the staircase of high achievers

Knitting is dead, long live package holidays

Are you lost or found?

Sitting in church listening to the mp3

Conceptual art made of a hundred farts

So many landscapes to ignore

Dreaming of change on the computer screen

Sleeping through yesterday's highs and lows

Waking to a struggle and in that struggle find

A puzzle
