Generation Gap - बृज किशोरे दास (1973)

Stumbled on this poem - scribbled in a 1973 diary - by Braj Kishore Das...
perhaps still relevant...

They chided me
For my long hairs
Tho' I never thought
Short hair was bad

They snickered at
My worn-out jeans
Tho' I never thought
Neat terrycot bad

They said I ought
To shave
And keep clean...

I remembered
"The Generation Gap"
For I always knew
They only mocked
What they dared not do.
