So Long Savior

November 13, 2007
By Kaitlyn Hobbs, New City, NY

Snow slowly falling
Swirling swiftly through the air
Landing on a stiff sheet of seared sand
Held by the stout slave driver

Students standing side by side
Staring at the snow
Stranded in an institute
Supposed to save their souls

Stardust falling on their scarlet noses’
Shaking and shimmying through the sky

Outstretched hands
Longing to grasp the falling flakes

Students longing to seize the speedballs
Instructors snatching them away

Surely missing the surge from snow
But no longer have a say
