I was watching the baby today
And a question arose for me
A little voice just popped in my head
It said, "what does a child need."

Does she need industry?
Does she need a daddy who's gone 40 hours a week?
Does she need TV to tell her that she's ugly?
Does she need a school to tell her that her only value is her future productivity?
Does she need a church to tell her, "do what we say, cough up the money, or god is going to torture you eternally"?
Does she need parents who's hearts are numb from booze and work and drugs and TV?
What does a child need?


I was watching the baby today
And a question arose for me
A little voice just popped in my head
It said, "what does a child need."

Does she need modern technology to isolate her from the Earth who provides all her needs?
Does she need a society who's only priorities are Fear and Greed?
Does she need who judges the quality of its food by its relative toxicity?
Does she need a periphery of people she's never met for a community?

A child needs food that is clean, to eat
A child needs air that is clean, to breath
A child needs water that is clean, to drink
A child needs parents whose hearts are clean
