The sirens blare

Excitement stirs

Whats happening?

Is there a fire?

Is someone getting arrested?

Is someone hurt?

Chatter stirs

Everyone is interested


The sirens blare

Nothing happens

Class goes on

No excess chatter

No one cares

No idea of a fire

No care for criminals

Everyone pays attention


The sirens blare

Excitement stirs

Everyone flees

They are afraid

To get caught

To get killed

To be arrested

Everyone is scared
