May 21, Thurston high, 1998
By Cassi Clark
Blessed is the man who perseveres
La Bouche “Wanna be my lover”
pounds into my dreams, the bass
amazingly good for a clock radio.
The DJ gives the morning news:
“An expelled student with two handguns
and a rifle fired on other students
this morning in the Thurston High
School cafeteria…” under trial,
because when he has stood the test,
23 injuries: head, chest and stomach wounds
one dead and the killer’s parents.
Bless those who persecute you;
bless and curse not, Kristina's
brother's best friend was shot. I cry but
I don't know any of them, or anyone
in the other ten school shootings.
Pearl, Grayson, Redlands, Blackville,
Lynnville, Bethel, Moses Lake, Jonesboro,
West Paducah Amityville. I guess
the expelled boy watches the news. He will receive
the crown of life, that God has promised
to those who love Him. Maybe his story will
be on the next episode of The Simpsons;
maybe the next story-line will be the five
year-old that brought a gun to school.
