Kids with Guns

She came in the door yesterday
and before anything else
wanted a hug
Tells me she is scared
but not just her
…they all were.

Before I can ask why
runs off to
‘spend a penny’
then comes back and
tells me she’s scared again
voice raised a few octaves.

There’s a much older boy
in her drama class
who lost his cool.
he criticizes everyone
and, that’s okay
but it doesn’t work
both ways.
He goes off the deep end.

Today he lost it completely
so much so that a girl
called her parents.
The boy was asked to leave
and when they saw him
walking down the road
he was punching at the air
kicking and screaming
in such a rage.

Now she tells me she
thinks tomorrow he may
come to school with a gun
and kill them all.

What a sick place this
world of humans has become.

This boy is apparently at least 2 years older than the other kids, is always criticizing everyone’s acting ability and their efforts but when a girl challenged him on his today he supposedly lost it, so much so that it scared them all.
I told Chloe not to be silly, that this is PEI and, we don’t have things like kids with guns going to school and that it could never happen but the sad thing is, with the anger issues so many of the youth have today, it could well happen here just as well as anywhere else.
How sad it all is.
