Something there is that doesn't love a child
That sees it as a threat to chaos and misery
Innocence draws it like wolves to a wounded animal
It feeds on trust to devour and destroy it
Happiness and contentment disturb its peace
A child's joy can make it ache with agony
Children need guardians to protect them
From the beasts that lie in wait for opportunity
To pick off the helpless and the young
They need parents
Oh that's right they were given parents
What happened?

I think Robert Frost would approve, and I just love the ending. It's so appropriate for so many of the guys here.

Much love,
