Perspectives: 235/365

Amelia Pearce (PTO Mom, Music Friends of Sports Parent)

I’m broken by what’s happening here,
It’s such a fine line between
Prison and school,

We’re getting closer to prison,
The kids can’t leave class for the bathroom,
In fact, only one bathroom is open.

Hall passes are timed,
They hand out those things like at restaurants,
If the lights come on before the kid gets back, Saturday School.

This used to be such a great school,
Now the kids are incarcerated,
Six-hours at a time.
