He went to school today,
For one reason only,
And that was to say
What he had to say.
First period passed without another thought
After he knew it lunch was here.
That little boy scared
Like never before,
Got his tray and sat at his normal table.
As usual he say alone.
When his tray was empty,
And he drank his milk,
He could barely sit still.
He jumped three feet when the bell rang.
Walking slowly down the hallway
His head hung lower than normal.
Headed toward the gym.
A meeting was being held today.
When everyone was seated
And everyone was quite.
Johnny got up on stage.
Fighting off the teachers that told him no.
And got the attention of the school.
This is the time that Johnny made his announcement.
“School should be a fun place,
And place for people to meet,
Where it shouldn’t matter your about your race
It shouldn’t matter about the money you have.
It should be a time of fun,
Not a time where you have to be made fun of,
Not a time where you are scared to look at people
When you are walking down the hallway.
I would like to say thanks to you all,
For making my high school life,
A complete bitch.
So this is the last thing I’m going to say before I have to go.
Remember the good times you had,
Remember the people you forgot,
For this is the last time you’ll see me,
Now that I take this gun,
I’ll finally end my plot….”
The crowd screamed in bitter pain,
And Johnny lay dead,
While the crowd came to a painful quietness
A young lady got up and spoke on his behalf.
“Let’s all remember the people who we all forgot.”
