Mike came to school, after missing a couple of weeks.
Mrs.Henderson whispered to him before he took his seat,
fourth row, by the window
No one else said a word

Mike didn't go outside for recess and
didn't laugh when Lizzie Hamilton fell out of her desk
which she does a lot, because she doesn't listen to the teacher
who usually tells her she could really hurt herself
if she keeps doing that

Mrs.Henderson didn't mention it today so
some of the kids probably wondered why, but Mike didn't
knowing the teacher
knew the reason for his absence

Mike left school with his father, who picked him up
instead of going home on the bus
He didn't say anything about Lizzie
His family doesn't joke about falls anymore
