Be Safe

“Be safe”
they say,
but that’s not
what they mean.
Stay within
the boundaries laid.
Don’t take chances.
Don’t shout out.
“Be safe”
they tell me,
but it sounds more like
Don’t mess with the system
that we’ve set in place.
Follow the rules
and you’ll always have a space.
Don’t try anything risky.
play within the lines.
Just follow these rules,
and you’ll always
be safe.

Prompt: Be Safe
