Home Schooling

We have been abandoned by heroes
who were not role models
or were one of many Mr. Smith's
in Washington

Who can look up to
steroid binges
gun fights
drug charges
fist fights
and the like

We have been abandoned by heroes
stripped from comic book thrones
or having tripped over their own
mortal desires

What's wrong with my generation
Gee, Mommy, you tell me
it's not just Joe DiMaggio
our nation looks for anymore

Little boys and little girls
wanna grow up to be famous
home run hitting
hit single having
drug abusing

They are the ones that have been abandoned
by heroes in their own homes
allowing commercials and consumerism
to teach them the value of love?
