It's easy to click

It’s easy to click when you’re browsing

As nobody knows who you are.

The world is right there to discover

So funny and cool and bizarre.

 

But you click on a link and it opens

A picture you wish wasn’t there

And now you can’t seem to delete it.

You’re not in charge, it’s just not fair.

 

If anything gives you that feeling

In your stomach that something is wrong

Then don’t be afraid, tell your parents.

To tell the truth shows that you’re strong.

 

I know that you think they’ll be angry

I know that you’re scared they’ll be mad

But they’ll be so glad that you told them

About something which you knew was bad.
