Things I Didn't Hear

I heard a song on the radio

About fucked up kids

I heard a speech about kids that were spoiled

And kids that didn't understand the real world

I heard stories about kids making mistakes

I heard about kids with technology

I heard a lie about a kid with ideas

I heard so much about kids and how kids are fucked up.

 

But I didn't hear anything about the rising prices of education

And the building inflation

I didn't hear about money spent on war

Instead of defense and progress

I didn't hear about politicians hiding behind religion

Even when their policies don't support loving neighbors

I didn't hear about power corruption

I didn't hear about feeding those same kids ideas and ideals like 

Greed

Racism

Accusations

I didn't hear much about that.

 

But I saw it.
