The    Dogs    Were    in    the    Halls


    
The    dogs    were    in    the    halls    and
It    was    a    good    thing
Because    we    didn’t    find
Any    drugs
Or    bombs,
Guns,
Handcuffs,
Nun    chucks,
Aspirin,
Breath    mints,
Spark    plugs,
Hair    pieces,
Food    crumbs,
Gang-colored    hats,
Pictures,
Books,
Paper,
Pens,
Pencils,
Ideas,
Or    original    thinking.
So    our    school    district    is    safe.
