  • whispers answer screams of hate
  • fools, not wise men ponder fate
  • adults play, while children wait
  • death’s grim hand will keep life straight
  • leaders walk with crooked gait
  • seeking paths, once it’s too late
  • greed has put them in this strait
  • and the fear which is its’ mate
  • Sharing is a saving trait
  • learning serves as freedom’s gate
  • some forget life’s gift is great
  • expect it served, on a plate
