Your Story - Poem by RIC BASTASA

children are prohibited
to attend burials
death is taboo
in their young minds

once there was a child
who was in vacation in Mexico
and saw murder, death
and injustice

the child went crazy
seeing such a reality

in our place however
children already know what
a revolution is
they are trained to fire the guns
and aim it at soldiers
their parents are proud of them
and when they die
they are hailed as the new heroes
of this goddem republic
