Behind bars.........

Clutch in the morn of nine,
a little girl cries her tears out.
'Tis a school gate, wonder where her teachers are...
is this not the much spoken, girl child.
Her right of education infringed to me, 'tis my view.
How else do you explain this 10yr old,
clutch on rusty bars in this cold.

It is my folly not,

[Hata Bildir]
