Care in the Community

the life was simple and safe

never a care or harsh word

then came the day of the change

you’ll be fine they said, smiling

see nothing’ll hold you back now

nothing did, couldn’t help it

no one said about traffic lights

so when he went to cross

at red the lorry hit him

killed him stone dead

and they said

should’ve taken care in the

community

not quite right you see

not like you and me
