Poor little baby

Poor little baby
Look at you
Grasping the earth
Suffocating at birth

Poor little baby
Look at you
Dreaming their dreams
Becoming their means

Fucked up baby
Fucked up crazy

Eat it, eat it
What you get your hands on
Breathe it, feed it
What you get your mouth on

Will you survive?
Will you always be deprived?
Will you live twice?
Will you be wise?

Poor little baby
Look at you
Pain that’s untold
Growing so old

Poor little baby
Look at you
Creating so much more
Than you could deal with before

Die
Poor little baby
Cry
Poor little baby
Die.

saw this kid on the roadside last evening..few months old, old enough to sit and not fall..eyes drooping, face sullen, saliva stains from his innocent mouth..

Street Child
Lovely baby
Melt into the Sun
You Stare into the window
Keeping dreams full of fun

Street Child
Lovely baby
Look what have you done
You died under the moonlight
When your life had just begun..
