They shot him down

Little Johnny Tredwell
Is the Call of Duty king
He shoots em up
He blows em up
With boom a bash a swing

Little Johnny Tredwell 
Is a violent young man
He pushes kids
He punches kids
But the smart children ran

Little Johnny Tredwell 
Has grown up to be a soldier
They shoot him up
They blow him up
The ground beneath him smolders

Little Johnny Tredwell 
Could have read a book
A mystery
A history
That's all it would have took

Now Little Johnny Tredwell
Is buried in the ground
He could've been 
The president
But his mind was never found

    Thanks! I was hoping to make it simple on the outside, but have an extra layer of depth underneath. I hope you enjoyed it!
