The Teenager

Her sassy borders on cheek
When cute becomes rude
And she’s no longer so neat
The teenager has turned
Ready to treat you
As the mortal enemy
Because now the truth is out
Your mission is only to stop
Them from having fun
From living a cool life
Parent so lame
They’ll condemn you
To be unseen in their presence
But they will come around
One day they’ll know
The intentions of this
Were much love and safety
And they will understand it
When they have children
Of their very own
