Age and Youth

You say
That the aged
Should give way
To youth.
For the aged
Are from a bygone age
And have nothing to say
To youth.

You,in your early twenties,
So empty
Yet, so sure
That youth
Is the one and only truth.
Why should I engage
With a pencil jot upon a page
That a rubber, so soon obscures?
