Pray for a Generation A

We’re in a woeful state, down to the last generation: Z.
I fear it might be they’re an omega of generations phase, as in 
the end of that beginning and the end phrase.
I guess I am that A and the Z, they may say
while they sit with those video games,
may never even warm the bench on a basketball team,
will sit for hours more of video games,
may never know how to throw a strike or even a ball
anywhere at all.
Give them a screen and a console,
and let the games begin.
It’s a virtual certainty they’re not
swimming or running or even walking their way,
they’re couching their way to their post-Z grave.
