Who Speaks For The Teens?

If the Lorax speaks for the trees, 

who speaks for the teens?

It can't be you or you 'casue

you know nothing about me.

It can't be our mothers

and fathers because they don't

know every teen.

It can't be the teacher's and principles

because they don't really know everything.

So I ask again, if the Lorax speaks 

for the trees, who speaks for the teens?

I guess it'll have

to be you and me.
