Lamentations from the YA Section at Barnes and Noble MAG
It smells like Teen Spirit that's just gone rotten
They churn out these pages, but something's forgotten.
The words are all there, but they omit the plot and
Any notion of theme, executed, gunshot.
Bloodsucking heartthrobs, at the head of the craze,
End my vain attempts of escaping this maze.
Trashy paperbacks put me in a daze,
Twilight-vision goggles would see through the haze.
So pack it in, Holden, no more catching in rye.
The cause was worthy, the fight worth a try.
But now it seems worthless, so kiss it good-bye,
Your time is at hand, now just let it die.
