About the Poem
The writer wonders why, as he gets older, more of the world is managed by babies.
Children In Charge
|by Dee Martin|
|We must be getting desperate
For people who can fill the ranks
Of doctors, lawyers, police,
Even presidents of banks.
When I was young, these pillars
Were imposingly mature.
Now it seems the practice is
To pick them younger every year.
