Beware! - Poem by Pamela Ann Frances Crane

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

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

Everything you eat
Can kill you. Horsemeat

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
