The issue you must now address –
  How can the school ensure
That all has been done to assess
  Is this room quite secure
Crime factors – rife in Western Cape –
  These do raise great concerns
Fierce gangs and hijackings and rape
  This from the news one learns
With unemployment figures high
  It comes as no surprise
Thief gangs steal all that they can spy
  Crime rates are on the rise
Soft targets most thieves do prefer
  Like a computer lab
If there’s no measure to deter
  They come in swift and grab
One therefore must do all one can
  To keep the thieves away
For strict security must plan
  Due diligence display
The fav’rite place from where they steal
  Is through the roof – up top –
Through ceilings boldly their way feel
  Leave with a hardware crop
The way to stop them – one must choose
  A room with roof concrete
Through this route P Cs you won’t lose
  Seal up the thief’s retreat
If such a room can not be found
  Barbed wire one can use
Uncoiled above and tightly bound
  To halt a thief’s abuse
Steel mesh above the ceiling may
  A thief’s efforts deflect
In this sure way keep them at bay
  The school’s assets protect
Do not neglect the doors to lock
  To keep delinquents out
When thieves steal all the precious stock
  Poor schools must do without
Essential is a safety gate
  To give security
And when there is a steel mesh grate
  There’s extra certainty
Strong cages that are made of steel
  – With this experts concur –
While these add to a safety feel
  Quick exits they deter
The door must be protected well
  The culprits one must block
A safe’s door will their efforts quell
  As would a strong padlock
Through windows thieves can also move
  To take their loot away
Here one must also clearly prove
  That they can’t have their way
Strong burglar bars keep thieves outside
  The lab they must not wreck
Install them on the room’s inside
  For this draw up a spec
Firm stone guards that will shield from bricks
  The windows fortify
Protect against stone throwers tricks
  These missiles they defy
At times it is expedient
  To brick the windows closed
One can not be too lenient
  Nor should one be exposed
The windows ceiling and the door
  On these schools must reflect
And in the project plan explore
  How one them would protect
To add extra security
  ‘gainst crime one must revolt
Use locks for robust surety
  And use a sturdy bolt
Surveillance – this must be in place –
  In regions of high crime
Thieves will think twice to show a face
  Won’t through the windows climb
To lose P Cs – a prospect grim –
  Leaves one in great despair
Invest in an alarm system
  This gives the thieves a scare 
And so all safety features are
  Planned to the nth degree
The burglars may not leave a scar
  When on a stealing spree
These steps thieves merely will deter
  It won’t keep out the pros
Insurance will some costs incur
  But will prevent great woes
At this stage do alert the school
  Insurance they must buy
They must keep money in the pool
  The fees – per month – are high
The project plan – it must reflect –
  Each high secure aspect
Describes the best way to protect
  And thieves’ efforts deflect
