The school was a haven,

if not used for the purpose intended.

Safety is more important than education,

but eventually offering safety,

is less important than throwing you through paper hoops.

Don’t they see you’re on fire?

  1. a fact school authorities prefer to ignore, safety of kids should be the first goal of every school

  2. mySestina Says:

    Safety is surely more important but we don’t seem to realize that anymore! sad

  3. Goandria Says:

    Great poem. It hits on a topic that few schools address.

  4. I always maintained my counselor’s office as a safe haven. Many children were saved that way.
