Educate your people.
Donít kill the heart
donít kill the young
donít lock them up where as they will be harmed
society take a stand
take the mote out of your eye
stop looking into mines
society you're leaving future victims
so willing to take risks,
so ignorant of the consequences of one mistake. 
You can not see
you do not see
what you have done to our children 
throughout history.
Yet you're
Fussing about sanitation of food and water,
yet a quickie with a stranger you will take a chance
you will slip off with some woman or man
a moment of pleasure
while no ones looking
be real
quickies kill
she gave her consent
he gave his consent
but you society sent them unto the unknown
to hide in dark places
to lie with unknown bodies
where love donít reside
where victims are ordinarily grown
leave those that loves alone
leave them before it's to late.
itís not rape
itís desire
itís want
itís need
itís love
itís need mo
itís a release
not cut
not spread around
on clean sheets
not out of the streets
leave them alone
before infestation
carry us all home.
yet you lock them up
you destroy those that love
and free those that hate
date rape
are they in jail
date rape
are they behind bars
date rape
do they serve time
Both conservatives and liberals are at fault.
We would rather punish people
than educate them into caring about their own health,
and that of others
caring about yourself is not easy,
or learned overnight.
