Was human nature always evil?
Sixteen kids trying to survive, medieval.
Is man a scoundrel? No an animal.
Looked down upon by the reader as if they were cannibals.
They were once innocent kids filled with joy.
Now the only satisfaction comes from self-centered ploys.
Take a step back and realize these kids are not far.
In fact, they roam around D.C. on racist radar.
The Rogers are the supporters of Jack.
A mirror of the political scene on crack.
Shame the piggys and drop the boulders.
Every minority in America feels the weight of racism on their shoulders.
From greed of power to wealth we are no advanced society.
No better than a teacher forcing a student to present with social anxiety.
Lord of the flies, backwardness in the street.
This isn’t a story about kids but humanity.
A mirror into the brain of insanity, yet we are not in the asylum.
This world needs saving like Batman in Arkham Asylum.
is bound up
for we can
