Inebriated Generation (The Power Of “Tion” 3)

A world full of mass intoxication,
Drunken aggravation,
Tipsy youth intimidation,
With celebrity manipulation.
A different modernisation,
A culture modification,
Which glamorises inebriation,
Through television visualisation.
Different identification,
With no determination,
And no aspiration,
At their own obligation.
A downfall of a generation,
For their own glorification,
Wasting all their education,
With constant relaxation.
No care for their reputation,
Alcohol infatuation,
They love incrimination,
It’s cool to be on probation.
Morale obliteration,
Behaviour with no justification,
Don’t care for information,
Or their own rehabilitation.
After this observation,
I’m getting the indication,
There’s a boozing acceleration,
Sweeping right across this nation.
Which could be the annihilation,
Of the young association,
So lets stop this fascination,
And start this rectification.

  1. Love all three of these.

    • ClownPonders says:

      Thank you! πŸ™‚ “tion” is just brilliant to rhyme with, you can create so much from it.

      • Yeah, I like the way you use it though. It didn’t feel gimmicky or forced, which is a risk when doing these kinds of poems.

      • ClownPonders says:

        I know what you mean, it could so easily lose its flow but for some reason I have the ability to rhyme in that pattern all day πŸ™‚ Your feedback means so much mate thank you

      • O yeah no problem man. I enjoy reading your stuff,I could read poetry all day. It amazes me how many talented people are on here. Also you were the first person to follow my blog, so thanks, I appreciate that a lot.

      • ClownPonders says:

        Thank you πŸ™‚ Same here, I spend at least an hour on here each day just reading the poetry feed, there are truly some brilliant writers on here.
        It was my pleasure πŸ™‚

  2. You’re right, Corey, we need to pay attention to, rather than shun, the power of ‘tion’ – this is a mega piece of work.

    Wow that was a masterpiece. It makes me to try “tion”, but on second thoughts my muse will shun me πŸ˜›

    I loved the rhyming effects that strings a powerful message! Loved the way you write, your flow of thoughts and the way you string cluster of letters, not only adding a life but also giving a meaningful shape to thoughts in minds of readers. Amazing work! πŸ™‚

    • ClownPonders says:

      Wow thank you for the wonderful feedback πŸ™‚ You have made my day with that comment! πŸ™‚

  4. This was amazing!!

    It took me a moment to get the rhythm, but once I did, I was hooked!

    So true how a lot of the young people growing up in the world think it’s so cool to be the one who can drink the most or do the most dangerous stunt… while drunk (where I live at least, can’t say for other areas of this vast world). Doesn’t make sense to me, but… I suppose thats is just my opinion.

    Take Care.

    • ClownPonders says:

      Wow thank you very much you are just to kind :). No I am not published but maybe one day I will be, but if not as long as people like you are enjoying my work I will be more than happy πŸ™‚
