In an age where in parents have to work to sustain the family
kids stay indoors; for no one takes them out to play.
Standing, nose pressed to window grills
they watch the world pass by.
Some where else kids do play
in the belief that all is fine.
Parents do watch out for them
every now and then.
And some where a lurker moves
a lurker who has abandoned his moralities,
and let its demoniac qualities surface
and drowned all its goodness.
The lurker moves
and eyes the one at home
and the one out
And all peace is gone.
Safety, what is that?
