(A forty-ish man with a feed cap crammed on his head, but tipped back.)

“On this capital or corporal punishment, or what have you, the way I see
It is, he was somebody’s baby, born all shiny and sweet,
And then he gets to be a teenager and we
Don’t like him so good no more.
Then he goes out and does a crime and then we kill
Him cause suddenly he ain’t no good to nobody no more."

—Gay Davidson-Zielske, Madison
