The Children Are Watching
Poetry By John Cannon

Only the child
sees
reality
 
without
 
filters
screens
distortions.
 
 
Only the child
speaks
truth
 
without
 
qualification
modification
obfuscation.
 
 
Only the child
asks
truly deep questions,
 
“Why are you killing
 
all the beautiful,
innocent
plants and animals?”
 
 
And we think
 
the child
 
needs to be educated?
