like something from a cheesy 1950s sitcom
we are told we can all stay out and party --
HALF HOUR LONGER!
we were children
as if the avalanche of over reaction
to two very real tragedies
calvinist in intent
and economically suicidal.
Why was it
young people from the harbourside suburbs?
Was it meant to create havoc in blue blood enclaves
as the drugs, call girls and bad behavior
relocated east or west
more focus was not directed to teaching young men
to manage their anger and not be violent
to keep other young men safe on the street
and thousands of women safer in their homes.
