Forum Post: Haiku Apology from a Senior Citizen

It is all our fault

All of it and all of us

We ignored the signs.

We grabbed a big share

We consumed all our bargains

We ignored the costs.

Frenetic spending

Credit cards to get still more

Ignoring value.

Then the bubble burst

There was no substance left

Who else can we blame?

I beg you, learn, learn

There are better ways out there

Find them and use them.

Work together, please

For the benefit of all

Not a privileged few.

we will overcome

of this there is no doubt

But no change will come

and together

we will teach our children

the new ways, the better ways

Not all seniors did this...some of us were screaming and no one heard.

True. And from many of the posts on this site and the continued actions of our recent government most people have learned dick.

Keep spreading the darkness - it's the only way others may see the light.

A nice, cliche answer.

You aren't worthy of more thatn a cliche, if even that.
