SCHOOL BUS FIGHT: true life
If i remember correctly:
My philosophy was Don't react unless
Necessary. The school day was over.
The ride home began normally.
(Corrections made In this poem)
Then the School bus Bully began
annoying me. Robert! Was his name!
He hit me with his rolled up comic
book as usual. Alright. This is
happening. He stopped after more
Kids were on board. As we rode the
Brat behind me began kicking my
Seat. Okay alright. I can handle this!
Patience and kindness! No problem.
Besides I really didn't want to fight.
I stood and glared at her. Nope.
That was not the solution there.
So since I was the HARMLESS one
I sat down. She Continued kicking the
Back of the seat. I stood again and
Said, "Stop kicking my seat. You
Keep kicking my seat!" So we had
Words. She said, "Yeah that's right
I'm kicking your seat what you gon
Do about it!" The CHALLENGE!
That was THE FIRST OFFENSE! ooh!
Had to remember my philosophy!
As she wiggled her dirty little finger
In front of my FACE?! (She was obviously
Crazy!) That was THE SECOND
OFFENSE! The PHILOSOPHER was
Being offended! I pushed her hand
Away from my face. Now her
Brothers were trying for interference!
Yeah the Bernstein bear brothers!
The two of them with their sister were
The whole Bernstein bear family!
The bus bully held them back!
While on the opposite side FRIENDS
Of the FAMILY and my sister Wanda
Guarded against interfering spectators.
While the little girl made the first
Move pulling my hair!
And the fight was ON! FULL FORCE
FORMED! I managed to get her in
A head lock for a few seconds. I really
Didn't want to hurt her. But she
Began pulling the HAIR! MY HAIR?!
At this point I had some curse words
"This B@$%H" pulling my hair!
I beat her away from me and caught
A glimpse of my sister and FRIENDS OF
THE FAMILY cheering me on. And
She continued?! To fight?! I separated
Myself from her and pushed her down
Onto the seat and started stomping
Her. I saw a bit of blood and stomped
More! The bus driver stopped the bus.
I stopped my stomp. The cops came
To visit the scene (maybe self defense
Was a very serious crime) they spoke
To me as harshly as they could.
"Do you realize you could have caused
Serious injury to this child?" But
As far as I saw, My Veiw: she was
The PERFECT PROVOCATEUR!
I was the HARMLESS WARLORD!
Minding my own business. I had
A philosophy for 8 years old me:
React only when NECESSARY! haha!
THis was the MOST NECESSARY
SITUATION OF MY 8 YEARS-OLD
These events are mostly accurate despite
It had happened about 5 decades
