Very cute! I enjoyed this.
Exactly how I feel, I don't understand a word these kids speak nowadays. It's like I'm in the Twilight Zone.

I had to laugh. So true! Why can't they talk like they should?

When I was working with younger staff, I got myself into trouble more than once in the break room, asking, "What does that mean?"

Occasionally, the slang was foul talk and I didn't know it until they translated. One kind soul would speak up before the coming answer, which was bound to make my face turn red and say, "Anne, you don't really want to know."

Great poem, peppered throughout with slang this older generation can understand! Keep up the good writing.

Congratulations on your 1st place. You expressed very well, in rhyme, the way I feel too about modern slang words.
