World Wide Warrior 15
Police Officer: “I’m sorry Mrs. Silversmith,
There’s nothing I can do.”
The Police Officer impatiently stood up.
Rayen: “You are being a fool!
Do you not hear what these men said?”
Police Officer: “I heard it all perfectly well.
But we do not know who these men were,
And this will be an incredibly hard sell-
To The Governor’s office, he’s dealt with Syria
Long before this went down.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go.
I have to meet a patrol officer downtown.”
The Policeman left his corner office,
And Rayen began to seethe.
Rayen: “What kind of idiots are these men?”
Braden: “Please, Grandma, please.
Just relax for a minute.”
Rayen gut up in a huff.
She stormed out of the Police Station to their car,
Rayen: “I have had enough!”
Braden: “Grandma, there’s nothing we can do!”
Rayen sat herself down in their car.
Braden got in the driver’s seat,
And they hadn’t gone very far-
When Rayen said:
Rayen: “This story isn’t complete.
There is something we can do, Braden.
Though there is a risk.”
Braden: “But we don’t even know when they’ll attack.”
Rayen shook her head.
Rayen: “Tisk tisk…
We do know when they will attack Braden.
There’s a date on the letter Chris sent.
It’s the date of the Governor’s flag-day parade.”
Braden: “You don’t think they’re bent-
On hypnotizing the Governor before the parade,
And having him give a speech.”
Rayen: “I believe it’s up to us to investigate.
And I don’t doubt it in the least.
Braden, this is a moment where we must act
As Private citizens of our land.”
Braden: “… I agree. I’m with you.
Now, let’s come up with a plan.”
