bully babies at the pulpit, bully babies in the streets
you find them ranting in online games and vomiting their tweets
if i could wave a magic wand i would make them all go away
put them in a malleable jungle made of plasticine and clay
why not, you ask, a real jungle with poisonous frogs and snakes?
to learn, i say, the world they touch is the world that they will make.
