Poem/reflection: What happened to wisdom?

Whatever happened
to the idea
of the wisdom of age?

Why is it that when I shop,
or sit on a train,
or walk through the town,
I am treated as invisible
by anyone under the age of thirty?

Even in church
I can be considered as irrelevant,
simply because
I am not expected to understand
‘what young people want.’
