LA Lullaby

The LA cops got the bad guy,
sure, in the process they killed a baby,
but the important thing is

that they got the bad guy,
the baby was just collateral damage,
the LA cops are wonderful human beings.

“Damn baby deserved it for getting in the way,”
says the police spokesperson in private,
“he should have crawled away!”

Akoo, akoo, akoo, I’m here, don’t shot!
But, the cops shot anyway,
a drug addict is a menace to society,

and who knows, maybe the baby
was going to turn into a bad guy when he grew up.
Better get him now while he can’t shoot back.
