A.G. Stands for mostly AWFUL GENTS.
Short on soul and common sense,
It's stupid policy and gross expense
To lock kids up behind a fence But Attorneys General wear big shoes, They can gaol whoever they choose, Pocketing hundreds of thousands of smackeroos, While juveniles stand to lose. It seems there's no law that forbids, Incarcerating some poor kids Whose lives will be put on the skids By those who get paid quids and quids. Read the news and feel the rage. Kids of ten are under-age. They don't belong inside a cage, Time we move to turn the page. Photo from Amnesty International (Raise the Age) I'd like to see the list of crimes, These kids had undertaken, Seems Racist thinking lurks behind Juvenile Incarceration. With guidance at fourteen it's possible they May find their feet and find a way, Given the chance, to start again, But what's their chance at the age of ten? Buckley's!
