Seven teen shadows

When community spirit is in the bottle that’s passed around
and the only
common ground is the parking lot you plot up in
and the ‘Social’ is not very sociable when they sanction you
and it’s non-negotiable,
you’re basically screwed.

Honest men would turn to crime
and later try to turn back time
and nothing good will come from
penalising poor men.
