Sonnet #5

Protractors, backpacks, markers, paper, glue
Pencils and pens ranging from reds to violets 
Make sure you have good sturdy shoes too 
Oh, and a Kevlar vest in case of hallway violence

“Resource” officers patrolling locker lined hallways 
Arresting children and facilitating bully disarmament  
Normalizing terror; learning run hide fight at a tender age
Drills for every school but silence from parliament 

Do you know how to respond to tyranny?
If not, come to school with me
