The School Councilor

Enemies at the gate.
The wicked within.

Reekers dragging cold souls
To the requiem for a dream.

The free world
In bad company.

The risk.
The score.

Just a drug store cowboy 
Back to school.

Back to school.
Priceless. 

Off-Air.

This poem evolved while paging through the menu of programs on my TV. I wrote down those that caught my eye and when reading down the list, I saw a story, a poem. Regards/Ross
