Ignorance Of The Law

Put me back in the dark,
this place where us kids
had the run of the neighborhood
at 5 or 6 years old
without adult supervision

we never knew the passer-bys
in cars, those adults,
were predators,
perverts and child killers,
because the television news
talked about other things,
like nuclear war

besides, we were mostly
superheroes and
if not safe

now, we line up here
and are fed
a 24 hour deluge of
shit and fear

and we don't know
what we need,
just that we need
more and more
and more

and we hate
and we fear
and we buy
and we stare
