Stopping by the hoods
on a snowy evening

to see who's shooting up
what twelve year old boy has his

first Saturday night special
what thirteen year old girl

lets her boyfriend
go all the way

what father-figure glories
in setting a bad example

what mother turns
the other cheek

until she's black and blue
like a cop's uniform

what grandmother
is dealing

and which of us do nothing
but skip town

who's stopping by the hoods
on this snowy evening?
