Why revolution? Why not?

C.2003 M. Bennett Hooper

Wonder why we need a revolution when all around us our institutions are crumbling.í
Like Junior and Baby Girl are in Junior High school and Baby Girl at 13 is pregnant with Mr. Leslieís baby and he is 34 and owns the cafť near the school
But it hasnĎt burned down and he still pats little girls on the behind when they come in to get change for the soda machine.
BUT WE DONĎT NEED A REVOLUTION.

Like everyone knows James Leroy rides the short bus to school but he
Is convicted of armed robbery cause he was in the car with his bright cousin Eddie when Eddie and his boys robbed the store and gave him a pack of cookies.
BUT WE DONíT NEED A REVOLUTION.

Like Mary Maybelle left her new baby number six in the back seat of a strangersí car while she traded sex for crack money and the baby choked on itsí own milk filled mucus as the car radio played loudly and it died without ever learning to say mama.
BUT WE DONíT NEED A REVOLUTION.

Like we in Arkansas await the decision to medicate a psychotic killer on death row so that he will be momentarily sane enough to understand he will be executed.
BUT WE DONíT NEED A REVOLUTION.

Like it is easier to jail youths with adult sentences and trials for heinous crimes without any accompanying penalties for malfunctions at the parental level.
BUT WE DONíT NEED A REVOLUTION.

Like we are reluctant to love each other above and beyond our physical desires as we watch our youth being desecrated and killed by first the resurgence of VD and quickly by AIDS.
BUT WE DONíT NEED A REVOLUTION.

Like youíre afraid of me and Iím afraid of you because you donít value your life and I have to become a killer to save mine because Iím old and now healthily frail.
But in my heart of hearts burns a fire of hope for us all.
BUT WE DONíT NEED A REVOLUTION WHEN JUST WAKING UP AND GETTING UP FROM DEAD LEVEL WOULD SUFFICE.
