Family Attacks and Generation Gap

I sit at the table, trepidation

And fear builds up, as I prepare

Myself for the vicious, vile venom

to spew from the maws of the

people for who I care.

 

“Oh! What a surprise!” uttered as

The first attack. A simple blow,

not too hard just yet. But fast,

comes the onslaught. Each one,

each misinformed member has a go.

 

Comment after comment after

Comment, thrown so casually.

As good-natured laughter

leaves my mouth, pretending I’m not a

Casualty.

 

Comment after comment after comment.

Each more irritating, more

Infuriating, more deceptively flamboyant

than the last. It feels like a

Competition and they are keeping

score.

 

Escape.

My first instinct is to escape!

 

“Again with the phone. This

generation is so addicted

Lately! How unfortunate. Tisk tisk”

……….SNAP!

There goes my patience.

I shall be many things,

But not condescended.

 

I prepare my attack, knowing

full well the consequences,

“As I recall, you were uninformed because

Of your lack of knowledge, with drugs and propaganda flowing,

As well as having a strange addiction to building fences”

 

Before a counterattack occurs, I retreat

Excusing myself, I leave with a smirk

saying I need a nap.

Behind me, I hear a strong rebuttal indeed,

“Sorry dear, it’s the generation gap”
