Kids Out Of Control - Poem by Patricia Kelley

All of these shootings in schools; have nothing to do with lack of gun control.
Kids have simply gotten out of control.
There's drugs and sex in schools.
Kids that refuse to obey rules.
Until these kids are taught the Golden Rules.
They will find new weapons and tools.
It could be, knives or scissors or even a hammer.
Our kids are in danger.
And, it's just not by a stranger.
The problem is schools are more concerned about the grammar.
We need to teach kids how to deescalate.
When, they or a friend starts to escalate.
We need to educate and teach kids how to control their anger.
Before it affects the other kids, and we see a domino effect.
Kids are not perfect.
But, they need to be checked.
It's fair to everyone.
I think all suspected problem kids should go through a psychological evaluation.
Including bullies, depressed loners, known gang members and druggies,
So, we get a revelation.
Why all the violence and shootings are happening in schools.
So, we get kids back under control.
