Background stoop past clash with

Authority problem coexist you think

You’re better than a handful I doubt

For a minute you’ve a nullify lifting

Weights tangling treats for domestic

Sly foxes never permitted at home

Behind bars at school a waste of free

Time bothering with tests and programs

Teach for life, damn it, forget college

Or any of that crap yes you might save

A few but who will become homeless

Or on the street hustling aged out and

Misdirected by a broken system that

Ignores their pain just makes them do

What others cannot stupid I think
