The New Young In The New Century

Here's a clear trend that's solid to my old eyes.

The young have veered to things the old would not:

'Graphic novels', 'body art', 'D.G.'

Images, not words, which makes this prophecy (critique?)

a whisper, not a slap, a joke, no charge before the bar.

Before, cartoons and animation were for kids. Tattoos for criminals.

Now, no one can read (or wants to) -- just be jarred, marred, en garde.
