Story on Page Four

He’s a picture in the paper,
A column on page four,
Not really very newsworthy,
We’ve read these things before.

He’s a victim of hate they say,
And I just wonder now,
That children learn to hate so well
If we don’t teach them how.

We teach our children right from wrong
And that hate has a cost,
Though now I cannot help but think
That our message has been lost.

He’ll be forgotten fairly soon
As one more tale is told
On page four of a newspaper
Where little stories go.
