Child Safety

Anyone who sneaks

Over the wall

Of the children’s playground

Rather than going through the gate

Must be up to no good

But the one who enters

Through the gate

Is the carer of children

The gatekeeper opens the gate

The children recognize their voice

The parents and carers

Call their own children by name

And lead them out

They walk with them

The children follow

Because they know their voice

They won’t follow a stranger

They will run from him

Because they don’t know his voice

From Parabolic Parables
