We have boys in Palestine and Israel shooting each other.
Boys in Parliament having public slanging matches.
Boys in tanks, playing video games as they fire.

We have sadistic African boys playing King Kong
Columbian and Brazilian boys cock-fighting
There are boy doctors, a cut above the rest
Boy zealots, pleasing daddy god
Boy traders, scrabbling for booty...

And I long for a man
