Sunnyside, Morningside and the Darkside



Sunnyside, Morningside and the Darkside

Mr. Cappleman, where’s our people now?
The students, parents, teachers?
The children on the climbing bars
The homeless in the tents?

Mr. Cappleman, where’s our voices now?
The laughter, cries and cheers?
The poor men’s cry for justice
The song of unity in home?

Mr. Cappleman, where’s our morals now?
We shred and tear for bits.
You smile and then you take our tents,
You take our choice to live.

Mr. Cappleman, where’s your dignity?
Mr. Cappleman, here’s our dignity!
Mr. Cappleman, here’s our respect!
Mr. Cappleman, where’s your respect?
