We’ve gone ahead and had some kids.
We’ll live as long as we can stand
To try to overcome that cliff
Of misery passed man to man.
Perhaps we’d have a better chance,
If in good time we acquiesce,
And accept our irrelevance.
We could fuck up a little less.
Our kids, We’ll fuck them up alright.
Our kids will, with our good intents,
Go on to set the world alight
With fucked ideals or common sense.
A rebuttal of Phillip Larkin.
