Security Services - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Door locks
Movement sensors
Electric fences
Police
Armed guards
Television monitors
Dogs
Bells
Block watches
Timed devices
Secret codes
Barred windows
Sexual protections...
To avoid contagious diseased infections!
And not 'one' visiting psychiatrist
On anyone's list...
To assist a mind,
Trapped within invisible fears!
Security services appear,
To protect excuses...
Of advancing mental breakdowns!
