It seems now

that killing teachers

(a new phenomenon)

though terribly wrong

is here to stay.


Teaching has become

a dangerous profession

and teachers will be

intimidated by the fear

that a  troubled student

could  lead to their demise.


We who hold many years

have fears about

our changing world.


We hope that when

we make our final exit

we’ll find a place

more peaceful

than the one we’ll leave behind
