Visual Poet’s Thirty Days of National Poetry Month 2011; The Baby Boomers Creed Poem

On this day of National Poetry Month 2011; I honor the numerous American Baby Boomers with my poem and visual poetry The Baby Boomers Creed

We are Baby Boomers, we are
We are the generation most creative and diverse, by far 
Brand new paths, we have set, all ablaze 
And, we have transformed each and every, life phase 
In elementary school we learned from Dick, Jane, Sally, Spot and Puff 
We entertained ourselves; we played rough and sometimes fell on our duff 
Hide-n-seek, ring around the roses
Red light, green light, sling shots and blind man's bluff 
And, toy makers provided us with a whole lotta, stuff 
The slinky, yo-yos, hula-hoops, spinnin', spinnin’ tops
And, marbles and jacks were way off, the cuff
Our music was hot, it has stood the test of time and still hangs tough
We sure did create over two decades of youth culture, positively enough
