What Have They Seen?

lyrics

NOT EVERY CHILD WHO READS THESE COMIC BOOKS
BECOMES A DELINQUENT, TRUE ENOUGH
IF WE INHALE TUBERCULOSIS BACTERIUM
SOME WILL STAY SAFE, BUT SOME GET INFECTED
WHY WOULD A YOUNG BOY TAKE A GUN
SHOOT IT FROM HIS WINDOW AT THE STANDS OF A BASEBALL GAME
WHY WOULD THAT SAME YOUNG BOY LAUGH AND BRAG TO HIS FRIENDS
AND NOT BETRAY A SHRED OF REGRET?

WHY WOULD GOOD KIDS DO THIS? WHAT HAVE THEY SEEN?
CHILDREN ARE FLOWERS AND IF THE SOIL IS GOOD
THEY WILL BURST FORTH STRONG AND TRUE ENOUGH
IF THE SOIL IS SICK THEY GROW DEFORMED AND MALIGNANT
HE MAY HAVE PULLED THE ITCHING TRIGGER
BUT HIS HAND WAS NOT THE ONLY HAND

WHY WOULD GOOD KIDS DO THIS? WHAT HAVE THEY SEEN?
