Contemporary Contempt
by Alex Andy Phuong

Across generations,
People do change
As well as age,
Yet life beyond post-modernity
Reveals how future generations
Could have trouble coping
With contempt
Unless people do attempt
To build a better day
Beginning with today,
And start that as they may,
And please do start,
Or things could fall apart
As this work of satire
Encourages everyone
To climb and soar higher
Before circumstances
Become dire
