They lit the wick
And seconds later
A bomb went off…
Not in so many words
And not in actuality…
It just sounded like one
I was a bystander…
Kept my mouth shut
To avoid being
Beaten up…
But don’t kids do
The dumbest things?
Luckily none were hurt
But I was always thinking
What if? Just dumb luck…
Sometimes it blesses us
