Straight Talk from Kids

...actual statements and questions from children, ages 11 through 16, in the days immediately preceding and immediately after the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The poem is a few years old: the feelings expressed are not.

What if war breaks out
While we're at school?
Kids should know
What's going on.
While we're in school
Watch the TV in the commons
What's going on?
Try CNN.
Watch TV in the commons
You'll stay informed.
Every channel's exactly the same.
You'll stay informed.
Did you hear about the war?
Every channel's exactly the same
What's the latest?
Did you hear about the war?
Kids should know
What's the latest.
