The End Of The Yuppies

Interesting times. One of my favorite memories was being in my twenty’s at the time, working a cool job; and lunch was $20 bucks. Back then, the $20 dollar bill was lovingly referred to as a Yuppy food coupon.

Seems those days are long gone. An ode to my youth. Seems these days; even the poets and bleeding hearts are looking for a free meal. Its been said there is no such thing as a free meal. Yet, we dig deep into our pockets and think of the meaning of zen; only to grasp the world is empty and devoid of meaning.

Seems this society has lost its way; however, I don’t believe the Yuppies are to blame for this problem. Maybe the boomers had something to do with it? Maybe it was the problem with people that didn’t understand the question.

Either way, its a problem now. The days of the twenty dollar bill for lunch has ended. We are damn lucky if we get to eat one meal a day; and that one is likely soup or something from mums kitchen.

If I had a time machine, I would go back to the late 90’s just for lunch. I know its selfish of me, but a man has to eat somewhere. My projects seem to be stuck in limbo, and I’m without a good bimbo to waste my time with. These days are tough. Never did master the art of wasting my time. Maybe some other life, when times are much better.

I thought it was going to get better, it seems salvation only comes in our dreams these days. Where did all the Yuppies go? Oh yeah, I forgot; its 2020 and they are all old people now. Pity. What I really want to know is what happened to all those jobs that was keeping the Yuppies in food coupons go?

We could use some of that these days.
