    Here is the poem when read from top to bottom
    .
    Our generation will be known for nothing.
    Never will anybody say,
    We were the peak of mankind.
    That is wrong, the truth is
    Our generation was a failure.
    Thinking that
    We actually succeeded
    Is a waste. And we know
    Living only for money and power
    Is the way to go.
    Being loving, respectful, and kind
    Is a dumb thing to do.
    Forgetting about that time,
    Will not be easy, but we will try.
    Changing our world for the better
    Is something we never did.
    Giving up
    Was how we handled our problems.
    Working hard
    Was a joke.
    We knew that
    People thought we couldn’t come back
    That might be true,
    Unless we turn things around

    (Read from bottom to top now)
    And here it is reversed – with a completely different meaning.


    Unless we turn things around
    That might be true,
    People thought we couldn’t come back
    We knew that
    Was a joke.
    Working hard
    Was how we handled our problems.
    Giving up
    Is something we never did.
    Changing our world for the better
    Will not be easy, but we will try.
    Forgetting about that time,
    Is a dumb thing to do.
    Being loving, respectful, and kind
    Is the way to go.
    Living only for money and power
    Is a waste. And we know
    We actually succeeded

    i think the age gives it greater merit

    considering everything is supposedly

    dumbed down

    bet he is heard of again
