Grand Theft Auto

I don't mean to say that Jimmy Hawk
Was a thief or a gangster on the run.
Despite the attitude and hip-hop talk
He was a gamer who paid for his fun.

And when they found his sister broken,
Beaten and shot and raped in the night,
He cried for the cops and laid his grief open
Not so much different than you or I might.

And after the killer was caught and frisked
And the news put his picture right next to hers,
With a t-shirt that said "GTA Rocks"
In the section above the soap opera blurbs,
James Alan Hawk busted all his game discs,
And changed all his clothes,
And took a sledge hammer to his Xbox.
