Has Full Time Been Called On Innocence?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As mere children in shrouds are laid to rest in the earth,
No longer to grace the green playing fields of youth,
Having been gunned down in the street, by their peers.
In this country of ours.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Has the referee of change blown the whistle,
Signifying full time, thus ending the myth,
And the whole perception of an innocent childhood
As we once knew it?.
