Give Them Time

Around this time children take over the streets ballin ridin walkin runnin We bow at their need to fill the day crackin laughin singin fightin Cars swerv on silent Porch protectors sip and see watch dogs turn friendly Forheads unfurrow Around this time Councils come to meet prison college testing red lines They bow at a greed to feed the bank pushing planning placing Pens making policy in the cool AC for the children at play Sunlit on blocks their feet will never meet These children taking over the streets have already Been given their time It’s no longer yours
