Back when my cousins (girls) did not like being disciplined. So they told their school counselor's that their step father touched them inappropriately. Being young I thought it was funny. But times have changed, yet it still goes on, just a wee more grows up.

A lack of leadership
Tell that to a woman of the unwieldy
She'll give a mighty slap at thee

So it is best to keep lips buttoned
Let the children do as they please
After all, their grown, with responsibilities

Yet mum be pestered, as she hovered
With them nagging at her, to take over

While their children, also unwieldy
Start fires and make things untidy

Aghast, when discipline unfolded
Ungrateful after been scolded
They blame the mum in retaliation

What does that show about our great nation?
Obviously, to outsiders, that's bloody American

That's not just America !!!
It happens across the entire planet.
One to ponder on.
Times haven't changed that much just a different outlook I guess..
That is all..Sprinkles....
