A dramatic poem to be performed by a class of children

Inspired by Rebecca Edwards aged 10

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It only takes one person to stand firm against crime and injustice
 and others will follow,

 until everybody speaks with the same voice.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Scene: a school playground.  A drug-pusher, about 18, is talking to a group of young children, who are not quite sure whether they can trust him.  One child stands outside the group.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pusher:         Come here little girl, come here little boy,
                        What a nice little dress, what a cute little toy.

Child: .............Don't go over there, don't be fooled by his smile,

Pusher:          Just come along over and talk for a while

                        We can all have a laugh, we can all have some fun,

Child:             There's a bulge in his coat, it might be a gun.

Pusher:         Would you like some candy, it's soft and it's sweet?

                        Give schoolwork a break, have a nice little treat.

Chorus:  Child (solo voice)

Drugs can kill, drugs can kill,

I don't need those needles and powders and pills.

Don't give me no hassle,

Don't give me no strife

Don't poison my body, don't poison my life!

Pusher:         Most of the time your life is a bore

                        I can make you go higher, I can make you go lower

Child:              Don't listen, don't listen, you can still walk away

Pusher:         Let's just hang around ~ we can talk, we can play

                        You'll feel good in your body, you'll feel good in your head

Child:              You won't feel very good when you end up dead.

Pusher:         Don't tell your parents or your teachers at school

                        Let's cruise the arcades, we can shoot some pool.

Chorus: Child + six others, who have joined the lone child outside the group:

            Drugs can kill, drugs can kill,

I don't need those needles and powders and pills.

Don't give me no hassle,

Don't give me no strife

Don't poison my body, don’t poison my life!

Pusher:         For just a few dollars you can have a good time

                        Take it from your parents

Child:                                                   You know it's a crime

                        Your future's at stake, don't end up in grief

                        He's a loser, he's an addict, a pimp and a thief.

                        You can be what you want, you still have to choose,

                        You can teach, you can preach, you can make the world's news

                        Be a model, or a singer, play football or dance

Take drugs and you'll never be given a chance.

Chorus:  All the children, now lined up against the pusher, who is backing away nervously:

Drugs can kill, drugs can kill,

I don't need those needles and powders and pills.

Don't give me no hassle,

Don't give me no strife

Don't poison my body, don't poison my life!
