Title: Listening skills

´Listen to me.´
´Do as you´re told.´
´Don´t answer back´.
The chant of the old.

´Listen to what?´
´Don´t know what you mean!´
´It doesn´t make sense´

The chant of the teens.

´I´ve told you before´.
´I won´t say it again.´
´Turn that thing down.´
´Stop being a pain.´

´But this is so fab.´
´It sounds cool to me.´
´Just what is your problem?´
´It´s better than T.V.´

´Right - then that´s it.´
´I´ve had more than enough.´
´I´ve asked you politely.´
´Now I´m going to get tough.´

´Listen to me´.
´You´re not being fair´.
´I´m only listening
To my C.D. player´.

´Listen to me.´
´Do as you´re told.´
´Don´t answer back´.
The chant of the old.

´Listen to what?´
´Don´t know what you mean!´
´It doesn´t make sense´

The chant of the teens.
