''It's Just Another Bomb Threat Mom''
She's not in class
where she should be at 9: 15 a.m.
She's at the church
acrossed the street from the high school
She assured me she's fine.
''Don't worry Mom''
''It's just another bomb threat
no big deal.''
She's so relaxed...
yet my heart races!
Could this be the day
that they aren't joking?
Who says it's just a ''threat''?
How am I supposed to stay calm
when the bomb sniffing dogs
are making their way
through the darkest hallways
of your school?
This happens often...
The recurrent sight of the serpent-like
line of teenagers winding their way
acrossed the street
seeking the safety of the old church.
Where are the parents
''separation of church and state''
I bet they're glad to have their child
sheltered by the church's crumbling walls now.
