Brother (A Lesson)

don’t try to control your children
until they know how to dream
otherwise all they’ll want
is to cry, smoke, and bleed

read read, read all about it in the morning papers
truth falleth upon the rapier
from atop the highest skyscraper

don’t feed the guerillas
until they know how to sing
otherwise all they’ll want
is to fight, cuss, and scream

in this regime

everyone knows
anything goes

everyone knows
