Futures

Why’d a child dream of cowboys?

How can all his friends be artists?

Why does the future die so young?

 

Why’d a teacher say he’s special?

Why would just but few be gifted?

Why’d the loud ones be diseased?

 

What is athletics — if not for pros?

What is an actor — if not for fame?

Which one matters: to do, or to be?

 

Why’s his camp across the ocean?

How’d she leave behind her loves?

Why does the future die so young?
