This is a poem about when are school had a gun threat. Hope you like

The threat of Eagle Grove High

We heard a boom
we heard a cry
then we heard the words
you die

The sirens sounded
the intercom rang
report to the gym immediately

Many people were scared
many cried
others laughed
while others wonderd why?

The teachers came loud and clear
there has a been a threat to Eagle Grove High

The group was silent
no sound was heard
except for the fear of life and death itself

The teachers said they are going to search
some said okay
while others said no way

Many cried
while others wondered are they going to live
or are they going to die

Many wonderd
who did this threat
this threat that could cost us are lives
who did this threat
this threat to Eagle Grove High.

Well done Star.  You've captured the fear and emotions of the moment.  What a frightening lesson on life tought to our children in their very schools. I wish it were not so ...

Best wishes,
/Kit

While I think the educational system leaves a lot be desired, there are some things that children should not be exposed to especially in an education enviroment. It is frightening to think that there are lethal weapons such as guns in public schools, it does not say a lot for our society.

Great poem.
