Curfew in Milwaukee

This was written during the 2016 Milwaukee curfew after a police shooting – not much has changed in four years.

Red's Wrap

Tell the kids to come home

It’s dark out there

There are cars driving fast

And people with guns

Tell the kids to come home

Sit still on the couch

Listen for the army

And hold their breath

Tell the kids to come home

Put on their pajamas

Draw pictures with markers

And pretend they are small

Tell the kids to come home

Remind them what happened

Say the whole long story

And give them hope
