I was late to school todayÖÖ I saw my principal on the street so I followed him.  Why?  Donít you know thereís a war on?  I followed him and snuck into an apartment building and overheard his conversation.  He told some lady he wants my teacher, Miss Gossim, fired.  He must be a spy.  Why do I think that?  Donít you know thereís a war on?  I need to stop this.  Why would he do this?   My dad would know what to do, but heís not around.  Why not?  Donít you know thereís a war on?  Things are so crazy.  My momís working at the Naval yard.  My dadís letters have holes cut in them and I spend my free time collecting scrap metal from strangers.  Why?  Donít you know thereís a war on?
