No More That Luxury - Poem by David Harris
At one time schools were open plan
anyone and everyone could just walk in.
There were no locked gate
and high perimeter fencing.
No more that luxury can we afford.
There is always suspicion
of those waiting to come in.
Schools now have high fences
with sharp points on the end.
They have become more like prisons
to keep our children in.
Gone are the days
of a carefree atmosphere.
Now there are security cameras
These are all needed
for the children in their care
to keep them separated
from the predators that linger out there.
