There seems to be a logic

When I want to teach my son
And he wants to play
He may be right--

When the cities explode with violence
They may be right
After decades of systematic exclusion
And marginalization

And when hundreds of thousand of gallons
Of oil
Continue spilling into the Gulf of Mexico
Day after day
And no one seems able to find a solution...

We get the leaders we deserve.
