The Age of Entitlement

Cookie jar

sits on the counter

beyond the reach
of the hungry child

who strains
to achieve
instant gratification
that defines
the Now Generation

Patience rapidly
replaced by frustration
as sweet dreams
go unfulfilled
(an early taste of adulthood)

Most will scream
and cry for Mommy
who of course
will give their baby
what they need
if only to shut them up
so they can get back
to their secret
online romance

The special toddler few
will learn to use their heads
and find a way
to overcome the denial obstacle
with a chair

They will will also find

satisfaction is multiplied

when you achieve the goal yourself

instead of having it handed to you

reaching for cookie jar mountain climbed
