Senior citizens

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized
for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world,
real or imaginary.
We know we take responsibility
for all we have done and do not blame others.

HOWEVER, upon reflection,
we would like to point out that it was NOT
the senior citizens who took:

The melody out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
The courtesy out of  driving,
The romance out of love,
The commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,
The learning out of education,
The civility out of Behaviour,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending.
