Stowe Middle School
Why is my neighborhood so poor?
Why do we use food stamps to go to the store?
Why are black men behind bars?
But have the talent to be superstars.
Why are there single mothers?
Why am I smart and not crazy?
You want to know why, because that’s the way
both of my parents raised me.
To the mothers and fathers out there be parents be fair,
Raise your children with Tender Loving Care.
