The school day was starting and JP had to go.
The dark mood of his morning continued to grow.
In his seat on the bus JP stared straight ahead
Thoughts of bus crashes filled him with dread.
A short anxious ride, brought JP to school,
He walked in without seeing his teacher Ms. Poole.
Ms. Poole, however, saw the look on his face,
Her eyes followed JP's slouch to his place.
