Culture shocks

The ‘Beat Generation’
now needs a pacemaker;
they can still Howl – but
it’s mostly in discomfort

Hippies now take a drag,
teeter on artificial joints
Peace, love, rock-and-roll?
Viagra, naps, Metamucil

Culture they unleashed
now subjected to leash laws
yet I admire their restraint
in not pandering to regret
