bomb threat

sitting in class
baking some food
when we were told
to leave the school

we had to go
on to the track
away from the school
and to not look back

a bomb threat was called
into the school
who would do this
they must be a fool

they searched the school
with stomachs in knots
while we watched anxiously
as it started getting hot

they thought they found it
behind the bleachers
but it was a false alarm
according to the teachers

a lot of the students
are scared to go back
they didn't even want
to leave the track

now that we're in
all still shaking
thinking to ourselves
if they were mistaking

what if it was real
and it happens again
the school would blow up
and that'd be the end

now it's the next day
students still in a roar
about the bomb threat
that opened the door

it made us realize
that the worse could happen
even in a small town
just like Washington

even small towns
can cause a big scandal
just remember not to panic
so you can handle.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
