As a teacher, he had a lot of clout,
Ethics and morals, he dared to flout
The child, timid and unable to shout,
Her plight, who will help her to sort out?
She saw him with fear in her eyes
Whom will she go for advice?
Will they think it is all bundle of lies?
Will the secret be buried in her as cold ice?
She was terrified and speechless,
She felt weak and powerless,
Oh! She was in deep distress,
To whom will she complain and express?
Abuse of any possible kind,
Scars the tender young mind,
The world prefers to be blind,
It is victims who are often maligned.
Like sweet angels from above,
Her seniors gave her support and love ,
The issue got all media attention,
He is now finally in detention.
She has thus become a protogonist,
Of kids, abused by people they trust,
Hopefully no child ever falls prey to lust,
And schools remain institutions august.
