Children In America! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

one out of three
children in America,
living in poverty?

what happened
to the land of promise?

children hungry,
children homeless,
children that wont

get a good education!

children, broken families,
children without future.
children without love....

turn to hate!

build your cities,
build your banks,
build your kingdoms

drunk on oil and blood!

your children, dying....
who digs their graves?
who closes their eyes?

who prays for their souls?

    The powers that be can't let children get in the way
    of them making money. A great poem, and sadly true. (Report) Reply
