Did Anyone Call?

Those two hours Tamir was playin’

shoot-em-up outside Cudell?

One thing I've been asking

and still want to know –

just one thing, that’s all -

Did anyone call

the rec center staff

-who knew him like a son -

Didn’t anyone call ‘n say,

takethatgun’way fromthatboy!

In those two hours, did anyone call?

That’s all I want to know.

That’s all.
