Freedom or Safety?

Battery hens
Once the economic way
To produce eggs
Now considered unacceptable
But they were safe from foxes.
What about the elderly
Caged in communal homes
In case they fall
Or hurt themselves
In the place that’s really home?
And what about our children
No longer free to roam
We give them artificial thrills
To feed their need for risk.
