Children die in such ways
I find that I can't get Jeffrey out of my mind. I can see him at 11- 12 years old jumping in the car, when I'd pick him up at a friends. It's so real...it's almost like you can reach out and touch him. What a world of hell this administration has put us in. One we will live in all the rest of our days...
Everybody dies, he could have gone another way, but he had to leave his parents behind. Voting put to 18 so they could have a say before they died, but we're still trapped and corralled, cordoned off to the private sector, waiting to be picked up by the butcher Uncle Sam. We're not so different in times of difference, we both still put our own heads to the chopping block.

we're all the fruit of our tree, the weak seed of American tree. Pine-ing for that shiny new thing, blind to the bright
to superscede you, a genius at your feet, begging for more than bottom feed from the colorful box,
they want you, mommy, they want you to show them the way to two jobs and poverty, gotta have that prettier sparkley, put it on the credit card and watch the money go before it comes,
hey you know this is stupid, how come you can't just show them how to build,
their mind a precious thing.
