What if Punk Never Happened?

What if punk never happened,
no bright, spiky hair,
no death metal music
and no smashing the chair?

What if chav never happened,
no hoodies and gimmicks
no irritating accents
and no constant "innits"?

What if cool never happened,
no smooth, sexy grin
no self-assured swagger
and no jutting of chin?

What if geek never happened,
no headgear and braces
no pocket protectors
and no spotty faces?

What if stereotypes never happened,
no labels and brands
What if our labels and ideas
were in our own hands?

The End
