Safety, what is that?

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?
