the second day of the war

June 6th, 2023 · No Comments

two persons were talking this
morning at the 7-11 checkout
isn’t it great the rain we’re having?
yes, but wouldn’t it be better to see
it at home in the garden? oh, yes!

no talk of the war
sore spot, this war

hundreds of children marched
from the high school yesterday,
in spontaneous protest peacefully
marching miles, escorted after
a few blocks by local police officers,
who cautioned them to stay
out of the streets and off of
federal property

they peacefully returned and were
all suspended from school, given
today to stay at home
the authorities appreciated their
idealism and exercise of free
speech, but cautioned them
that if they marched again,
the consequences would be severe
