Life and times

February 15, 1996|By Tiffany Latimore

This ain't no story of celebration

You see, where I've been and what I've seen

Little Red Riding Hood never got to her grandmom's house

The big bad man kidnapped her

Goldilocks never got back home

She got caught in a crossfire

Little Bo Peep never found her sheep

She took drugs and died

You see, in my neighborhood

It ain't no fairytale

Tiffany Latimore is an eighth-grade student at Old Court Middle School.
