Poem: Kids aren't stupid, you know

“Kids aren’t stupid, you know,” he said.
They notice what’s happening to the earth
And they’re not impressed
With our mad skills
Of protecting jobs rather than air and water
Of being polite rather than being wise
Of being political rather than being brave
Our mad skills
Kids aren’t stupid, you know
They’re not afraid to say it’s not okay
To create pollution and toxic chemicals
To destroy nature in the pursuit of money
They’re not afraid to say it
But we are
Kids aren’t stupid, you know
They see right through our bluff
Right through our plans and rationalizing
And they’re not afraid to say so
But we are
Kids aren’t stupid, you know
