Labels

School is a jungle.
The kids are like wild
Beasts
Prowling the hallways
Hiding in cliques, in
Packs

They prowl and watch
Each other
Rumors spreading
Like a fire

These packs have labels
And these labels are
All
Jock Prep
Goth Nerd
or
Outcast

You get your label.
It stays with you
Like a scar
You cannot lose it
For it cannot
Be removed

Some say: A leopard cannot change its spots.
I ask: Are they allowed to?
