Lost Generation

It's YouTube night tonight, and this is my favorite thing shared so far. :)
Although, Dear Deer was cute.

Ok, so I broke down and actually wrote out the text so I can share it with my class.
Here it is for anyone else who wants it. =o) The only thing that didn't line up is the word 'divorce'. It needs to be at the end of the line, but it got squished into the next line by this small space. *edit* I take that back, it all lined up correctly when I actually posted it.

Lost Generation- Text

I am part of a lost generation
and I refuse to believe that
I can change the world.
I realize that this may be a shock but
“True happiness comes from within”
is a lie, and
“Money will make me happy”
so in 30 years I will tell my children
they are not the most important thing in my life
my employer will know that
I have my priorities straight because
is more important than
I tell you this
once upon a time
families stayed together
but this will not be true in my era
this is a quick fix society
Experts tell me
30 years from now I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce.
I do not concede that
I will live in a country of my own making
In the future
environmental destruction will be the norm
No longer can it be said that
My peers and I care about this earth
It will be evident that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It is foolish to presume that
there is hope.

And all of this will come true unless we choose to reverse it.
