Family Meeting Over

We grew tired of hearing the lectures
So we rebelled
We came with a vengeance

They told us where we're going
And we replied
It's you who is going to need the protection

You're upsetting the order of things
They whined
Good thing we're not running a popularity contest

Can't we talk this out
They begged
Next time, think of some better last words
