Hear No Evil

Written by: Margeret Bailey

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.
