Pamela Ann Frances Crane


Beware!


Beware!
Secure your hard hat.
Danger lurks in the flat
Field and fresh air!

Beware!
Don’t go near the water.
A man and his daughter
Are drowning there!

Beware
Everything you eat
Can kill you. Horsemeat
Everywhere.

Beware -
Only the thin look great.
Say you are size eight
Whatever you wear.

Beware
Losing your self-esteem
When Following your Dream.
Worst nightmare.

Beware:
Kids must cope alone
While you are on your phone
With stuff to share.

Beware
Trends that are so last year.
Insist on the latest gear -
It’s only fair.

Beware -
For anything really nice
Don’t pay the asking price
Anywhere.

Beware
Those beggars on your street;
They drink. They never eat
Or wash their hair.

Beware,
That man with the ready smile
May be a paedophile.
Get out of there.

Beware:
A touch is an assault.
Nothing is your fault -
You were In Care.

Beware of cuddling. Beware of love.
Beware of the velvet hand in the iron glove.

Beware of black and posh and daft and queer -
Beware of everything you ought to fear.

Estranged from mercy, trust, reflection, prayer,
People, beware.
