Wolves Are Roaming Around Our Schools - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Why do schools of our innocent kids
are made the playground of insane jackals
who ran amok in classrooms with their guns
and think that they are in the forest
to kill birds perching on trees' branches?

Why should schools, the sacred ground
for training our innocent kids,
turn to be the favourite targets
of desperate wolves who plunge
their deadly claws into the innocents
and devour all those who try to stop
their beastly plan to eradicate
whom ever they meet?

Why, why, why, why, why?
Why do insane jackals and
desperate and hungry wolves get the chance
to enter into the schools of our dear kids?
