Hear No Evil

After school the children unwind
with their own rhythm and vibes,
drowning out the noise of the
adult world that suppresses
them,

So, on mute they travel all the
way home, oblivious to the
dangers that lurk within their
spaces,

The innocence can be seen on their faces,
with ever bop of their head, and tap of
their feet,

They feel immune to the creepy crawlers 
lurking on the streets, waiting to snatch 
them away for frolic and treats.

    oh, man, could leave some comments for this one, but will just say here that i nearly crash collided with a young zombie today dressed up fine while walkin' fast readin' his paper with ipodness in BOTH ears. I scowled, but he didn't feel it am pretty sure. So it goes. Thanks for the thought provoking write, Margeret!~N
