As I drive around I
notice that everywhere that a child is born.
Bend, and worship, says the sign.
It is ironic that about fourty million
children are neglected,
that up to fifty
percent say they are physically abused, and
about six children will commit suicde
before this day has set.
And we're supposed to be a Christian
As parents send their children to the streets
or to a clinic to change who their child loves-
as if the fact they could say it wasn't brave
and pure enough to make it real.
And the picketing conues even though a
straight man rapped about his uncles' love
despite gay artists have sung about it for decades.
Tegan and Sara and Levi Kreis be damned
because they're not straight.
Just sing out the guilt about how the child doesn't
into your perfect world. This one sized classroom
works for all with the memorized facts of Rosa Parks
yet unable to rely the info of her soul, how her
courage gave tons of individuals across ethnicities to
THIS IS WRONG!
So okay, lay back in your arm chair.
Stare me down.
I know I don't fit your mold.
This doesn't mean I can't teach your
children how to pass
through their anger
