Teachers and administration
All blamed for school violence on my morning newsfeed.
We seem to have misplaced your application to join us in this fight.
We seem to have been negligent on balancing self-hate
As we educate and implement new and most important drills
For societal problems that we did not create.
But we inherit and we push for change.
Oh, and we educate.
And we engage
In active shooter training,
In practice drills,
In changes to the building.
In threats and conferences
And curriculum development.
And we hear your rage.
We understand the fear and our responsibility.
Procedures are in place. Preventions are being made.
But of course there is always more to do.
And we look forward to meeting you.
