The Kids

Here come the kids
with attitude
cool clothes awry
chewing gum & alt style
hair just that little bit
different
than the next
I’d love to whisper
into cool ears
indifferent souls
that this is the way
trouble starts
& I’m sure
That would excite them
further.
Some will grow through this
up & out
and a silent few
won’t
for them
the difference
is
what matters
the teachers
police
the ones who feel a
authority
as
their guiding force
love these kids
it gives them easy
targets
places
to act out
their own shit
with little fear
of reprisal
cos we all hate
the cool kids
unless its
us.
