Perspectives: 172/365

Jerry Dean (Basketball Player, Eight Bars Parents)

I should be organizing our next move,
Our parents are trying to get rid of Sports and Music,
But this is small potatoes
Compared to what I want to talk about.

You see, I may be a kid
In the eyes of the law
And I get to go home to my parents each night.
They get to be with me,

But in the eyes of this youth,
I have a voice, I have a conscience,
And I will use it for what is right.
This argument about coaches is not right.

It is nothing, it’s trivial and petty,
Because there are children
Who don’t get to be with their parents
And their parents have no recourse to get the children back.

We the people,
A narrow-minded and split electorate,
Put this disgrace in office
Under the guise that His administration would be good for us.

How much longer will people
BELIEVE
In the way that THIS GUY
Is governing?

Forget what party a person is in,
Forget where they get their cable news,
Forget where they worship,
Aren’t people aware of the hateful things being done?

Why aren’t there more protests?
Why aren’t more businesses speaking out?
When will the country music artists speak out?
Middle America and religious values, are you there?

Right now, school is about to start,
We are ready to protest the way our district is handling the issue,
It’s basically the same mentality
As our President with immigration.

Kids are being held hostage
While adults posture for their gain
At the expense of
Children.

We will address our concerns
In the best ways we can,
Rest assured, though,
We are not kids.
