Poem: Influence

Everybody’s happy

Boys will be boys

When will they realize that

Weapons aren’t toys.

 

Guns in the toyshop

Knives on TV

When will they realize

Why can’t they see.

 

The television stations

Promote kill and maim

Soon they will see that

It isn’t just a game.

 

Wrestling and boxing

Judo and Kung Fu

This is a lifestyle

Not what kids should do.

 

Executives, directors,

Producers as they’re called

Can’t see the damage

They ought to be appalled.

 

Everybody’s happy

Boys will be boys

When will they realize

Weapons aren’t toys.
