MAGNETICPOET

gir-ls danc-ing
 1
on the cor-ner,
 2
                                            boys are play-ing
 3
                                            at the zoo.
 4
hopscotch box-es
 5
dande-lions,
 6
                                            pick-ing no-ses
 7
                                            foot-ball too.
 8
gunshots blar-ing
 9
through the win-dow
 10
mom-ma com-forts
 11
          cry-ing eyes;
 12
                                            gunshots blar-ing
 13
                                            through the win-dow
 14
                                            mom-ma says that
 15
                                               "boys don't cry."
 16
grow up fast
 17
with-out red ros-es;
 18
                                            grow up fast
 19
                                            with-out good shoes.
 20
blood is wash-ing
 21
hopscotch cir-cles,
 22
                                            trapped in box-es
 23
                                            what to do?
 24
 
 
spin the bot-tle?
 25
                                            hu-man knot?
 26
mar-co po-lo,
 27
                                            hide and seek.
 28
fool your fam-ly,
 29
                                            steal the bac-on.
 30
 
 
 
 
gir-ls die,
 31
                                            and boys die too.
 32
