He didn't want to listen to his mother.
He didn't want to go to school,
or worry about grades,
or be forced to adhere to curfews and the
stupid, overprotective rules
that all mothers set for their children.
He told his father
and his father said he'd take him away
and he wouldn't have rules
or grades to worry about.
Naturally he said yes
and his mother wept
as he packed his bags and moved out.
His father was true to his word.
He dropped out
and his father got him a car
and he got a job at a construction site
and he made friends
and overall, he was happy.
his friend invited him to go out somewhere
and they met near the site they worked at
in the dark
and his best friend
shot him in the head
and took his car and his money.
The moral of the story
is that people
will betray you,
every single chance they get.
So don't give them the chance.
