>Never should have taken
that bus ride south
Knowing the markets were full of
Junkies and thieves waiting to take
Advantage of one so young
You thought that you were protected
By some invisible force
Called it the spirit of your deceased father
Though none of us could see him
You claimed he walked at your side
Guided and counseled on issues in your life
Depraved lecherous humans don’t know
Of such things … oh why did you take the bus ride?
Why did you head south?
