We are the Information Generation
With knowledge at our fingertips
We can find out anything in just a couple of clicks.
Just open the page and type in the word.
We are the generation that made Google a verb.
We are the Connected Generation staying in touch with our friends.
Measuring our self-worth in likes, shares and trends.
Our smartphones at our sides at all times.
It is our right hand, an extension of our minds.
We are the Lonely Generation that can’t find a date.
The Hookup Generation with no need for a mate.
The Educated Generation, attending universities.
The In-debt Generation, still paying the fees.
We showed up and fulfilled are bargain
Followed your plan and learned all your jargon
We were told “through education we’d reach the peak of our powers”
That’s what you said, the idea yours not ours
Now they say we’re lazy, full of arrogant entitlement
because we search for jobs with healthcare and retirement
We are the Awareness Generation who’s been paying attention
watching our parents slave away in hopes of pension
What they got was laidoff, foreclosures and debt
They’re pensions blown away
In financial Russian Roulette
We are the Working Class Generation, just happy to be hired
toiling away hoping not to be fired
We are the warrior generation, post 9-11.
The deployed soldier, The neglected veteran.
Scarred and scared still fighting a war with no end.
We are the Occupy generation that occupied Wall St.
All the while the police occupied us on their beat
We are the Tolerant Generation, politically correct
Still finding the way to show each other respect
We are the Millennial Generation, ready to embark
From all nations, colors and genders
A multicultural Noah’s Ark
So move over everyone, it’s time to take a bow
The millennials are here
And our time is now!
