Where have all the horrid parents gone? We need you back Your back-hand slaps, Your mad demands, Your curfews, Your groundings, Your video game bans.
That Was what made us rebel. I’m begging you, daddy To make me say grace at the dinner table So I can have something to be ******* about.
Look at you now With your understanding, Your two sips of beer for my 10th birthday, Your ‘not angry, just disappointed’ You’re pathetic! You used to have it all. You were there in the 50s And you were the reason for the 60s.
You would bruise your knees to dust behind the shelves But wince at the thought Of giving spare change to the poor.
You forced your kid to learn the bassoon And put him off classical for life.
You elected a Prime Minister who carpet bombed whole towns Then smacked your child for listening to a CD With the word, “****” in it.
You forbade your daughter from having boys in the house Which was why she got such a thrill From sneaking them into her bed
You said drugs would drive us insane Which was exactly what we wanted.
Now we only take them Because you’re square if you don’t. Your kids are complacent. With no rules to break, We are doomed to *** without the thrill, Music without the anger Politics without the anything at all.
The liberal parents have won. The cool mum that froze you inside, The gentle word that put your flame to bed, The masters of social control. They are evil to the bone. They have fooled everyone.
