Juvenile Lunacy



Hmmm...
Juvenile lunacy.
Suspected to be on the rise.
By those with blinded minds and eyes,
On delusion to fiction this dysfunction...
Represents a stage of childish activity.
Condoned to know this stage of life,
Comes to grow we all went through.
And terrorizing suburban and urban,
Communities from coast to coast...
Is nothing more,
Than children expressing their normalcy!

However...
This criminal activity,
Has reached beyond limits.
Needing prevention,
Nolonger to permit.
With a giving continual consent to it!

'OH?
So...
What do you recommend to suggest?'

'Let's see.
How about...
Confinement?
Rehabilitation?
With emphasis that teaches,
What respect to have...
And the meaning to value discipline.
Kids today?
Could care less what either one is.
Applied to appreciate,
Their own involvement...
In participating as entitled citizens.
Or how their actions reflect on humanity.
There is always assigned civic duty.
Publicly displayed on a daily basis.
And made enforced not to evade.

'But...
What about their civil rights?'

'What about yours?
What about mine?
Tell me...
Who has the right,
To terrorize our lives?
Done to do to believe this too,
Is an entitlement!
Are you through with that B.S.
I have yet to finish my suggestions.'

'OH by all means.
Continue with your ludicrous observations.'

Where was I...
Oh yes.
Although,
The parents?
Deniers of truth and reality.
Absorbed in delusion and fictioned fantasies?
Unable to face,
Their negligence and irresponsibilities?
To excuse this claim to place blame,
Somewhere else?
Before and after,
Attending mental therapy sessions?
Will not mend the minds,
Of our juvenile delinquents...
We have watched to observe,
Being messed up!

'Your suggestions to recommend,
Are much too severe.
What will our children think of us,
When they grow up?'

'Good question.
And...
What will you do,
If we don't give them that opportunity...
To grow to believe,
We did not care about them at all?
Build more prisons?
Hire more high paid prison guards?
And wardens to suggest and recommend,
To parents.
As to what they could and should do,
That would prevent their children...
From being detained.
And labelled juvenile lunatics.
Roaming around terrorizing neighborhoods!
At the taxpayers expense.
What sense does that make?'

'Your comments?
Your comments are not patriotic at all.'

'I've been told that.
By materialistic capitalists.
Defending their deluded denying to live lives!'
