    Yea we got some bad *** kids
    but I don't care what they did
    because they're still a kid
    kids duplicate what they learn
    and if you teach them fire you about to get burned

    the knucklehead kid in Florida charged with murder
    he don't need jail time he needs to be nutured
    case and point can't vote until age 18
    can't drink beer until age 21
    so you gonna send a 12 yr old kid to jail like the kid's life is done

    yea I know some of these kid are bad
    some don't have a mother or a dad
    you're not adult enough to vote until 18
    but you're adult enough to serve time at 13
    in a maximum correctional facility
    with "grown" people how silly
    see my point is as a kid how do you serve time
    and you can't enjoy "Miller Time"
    you know why - cause it's still a child's MIND

    jail time ain't the answer
    teach some of these kids some manners
    and whup they *** just like Nanna
    used to when I was a little kid
    taught me right from wrong so I knew how to act when I got big

    we visualize violence (movies, video games) as entertainment
    then you act surprised when they imitate it
    America, check your sons and daughters
    kids are like little tape recorders
    they need 24hrs a day, lifetime supporters
    not to hide them under the rug south of the border

    but I figure this country cares only about money
    not about the broken homes
    but the NASDAQ and the DOW JONES
    man I had to tell you how it is
    this country says they for the kids but they not for the kids
    you know how I know

    cause we're building more jails
    instead of some sort of positive universal structure
    teaching kids positive is the way to go
    in cities across America it will be hot this summer
    so pham pray for our youngsters


    Peace & Mad in the Streets

    PS by this weekend JUNE 8 or 9 i should be back spreading love and responding to everybody's wondeful work cause

    those you KNOW me KNOW i love the ART

    Peace to my fellow Prestigious Poets
