A poem dedicated to the students, staff, and families at Robb Elementary.

Sunshine spills through broken glass

Casings hide inside the class

Books and papers on the ground

Little desks turned upside down

Silence echoes in the halls

Dark red stains cover the walls

We’ve been told to think and pray

But the kids won’t be at school today.
