Shrapnel of the Age

Updated: Nov 10, 2022

Don’t knock technology you precious Boomer

with stents to hold your options open

pacemakers to keep you up with the beat

lenses to enhance your critical eye

and aids to stop the youngsters mumbling

there’s mesh to hold in your sags and bulges

titanium screws for your shattered dreams

ceramics and polymers, silicon and wires

your teeth capped and crowned for a royal smile

so don’t give us all that natural bullshit

carry with pride the shrapnel of the age.
