angst cycle (iii)
[k] (ii)

they buck you up your mum and dad
they really mean to so they do
they fill you with the love they had
and add some extra just for you

but they were bucked up in their turn
by those who knew so much to learn
who half the time had lives they’d sold
the other half were broken cold

man hands on his world to man
it deepens like a coastal shelf
expand your own world while you can
and give your kids its living health

There’s a chance this mockery is accidentally nicked. I can’t find it, so I suspect it’s mine (it’s been sitting my hard disk since 2009, waiting for the right home), but if you know better, please tell me.
