In a different world with a flash of lead

Southside Kildare arise; speak and convict
Shots fired on the mark, lethal blows
Chicago, Illinois stop the madness! What's the verdict?
Kildare irony murder by foes

Shots fired on the mark, lethal blows
Neighbors shocked, scared, astonished and rocked
Kildare irony, murder by foes
Life is upside down and inside out; wicked

Neighbors shocked, scared, astonished and rocked
Souhtside the evil's creeped on your street
Life is upside down and inside out; wicked
Evil has reared its gruesome head. Just crush it with your feet

Talk and talk then testify; solidify and unify
Souhside Kildare arise, speak and convict
Citizen Kildare get the facts and verify
Chicago, Illinois stop the madness! What's the verdict?

**I listened to the Chicago news today and a normally quiet
 residential street became the host to four murders at a home 
that had new owners in the neighborhood.
All the neighbors were shocked and in my poem I am encouraging 
residents to fight crime together. Kildare is the street.
