talking with the old hippie

reasonin’ he called it

it wasn’t all free love ban the bomb

he said

this was pre aids & post sex guilt

the pill had freed women from the home

being stuck on the baby treadmill

they were trying to find new ways to be

release themselves from old moulds

& what really got his beads shaking

now you kids can’t wait to get a label

we were about throwing those off

being who you could be

not who other people said you were

finding your true path

seeking out the higher ways

be who you really be
