Old Eyes

OLD EYES ~ A poem by JMM 

I've seen far too many old eyes
In the faces of children who've seen
the eye of a cruel whirlwind
that sears in it's passing across an innocence lost
for the sins of the fathers little kids pay the cost
And it goes on
As a new generation carries the weight
Of abuse and neglect and indifference and hate
and the vengeance that calls you must even the slate
Is it time now to fight for our children
