One Hundred and Seven

by DAN O’BRIEN

Remember Those kids That were killed That winter We were kids In New England Driving home As we drove home From school Through snow For the holidays Why Were they gone When we were Still here What Is there To do But light A candle Onstage Just as The show Begins
