putting on patches

these boys

I see strutting the street

believing in brotherhood

hanging together

putting on patches

as the water gets warmer

& before they know

will be

having to put on a show

not be who they were

but who they wanna be

the dues getting collected

get bigger harder tougher

ramping over a short time

& before long the numbers

were not what they were

the attention starts to hurt

& then they will wonder

who chose

this direction to go?
