These funny poems by illustrator and writer Samantha Jayne perfectly capture the struggle of being twenty-something, stuck in that awkward post-college period between adolescence and adulthood.

The nursery rhymes for grown-ups include such gems as "I love hearing about your choice to become gluten-free, please keep talking as I go drown myself in the sea," and "When I get hungry for more than just food, I log on to Tinder and order a dude." For parents, the funny poems are a hilarious look into the weird, wacky world of the social media-driven millennial generation, and for younger people, they might as well be a rhyming diary.

Posts and campaigns that can appeal to youth in a humorous, direct and sympathetic way -- like this Quarter Life Poetry -- tend to gain immediate social media traction, reaching a large and engaged audience.
