has not forgotten

that horrible day

.

cone

.

It was just before noon recess
When the principal’s voice
Came across the loudspeaker
“Attention”
“Teachers and Students”
“There is a cone in the field”
I remember thinking
I heard it wrong
Then my friend Jim
made a noise
I’d never heard him make
But
my teacher
Mrs. McFarland
She had such a strange look on her face
That I didn’t really hear
All the other children crying
