YOUR CHILDREN--Alexis Grigoropoulos--Poem written by children for his funeral

YOUR CHILDREN--Alexis Grigoropoulos--Poem written by children for his funeral
This is a translation of a tleaflet that was circulated at the funeral
of Alexis Grigoropoulos. It was written by school children:

WE WANT A BETTER WORLD
HELP US.
We are not terrorists, yobs, thugs.
WE ARE YOUR CHILDREN!
We are known, but still unknown.
We make dreams, don’t kill our dreams!We are impetuous, do not kill
our impetuosity!
REMEMBER
Once you too were young.
Now you chase money, you only care for image, you got fatter and lost
your hair.
YOU FORGOT!
We expected that you would support us.
We expected that you will show some interest, that for once you will
make us proud.
IN VAIN!
You live fake lives, you have bended your heads down, you have dropped
your trousers and you are waiting for the day you will die.
MATERIAL IS EVERYWHERE
LOVE IS NOWHERE
REALLY, NOWHERE
Where are our parents?
Where are the intellectuals and artists?
Why aren’t they outside to protect us?
THEY ARE KILLING US

YOUR CHILDREN
