Daily Prompt: Crossing

Standing at the crossing
Waiting for the Guard,
She’s on her smartphone
Staring across the street into that yard,
There’s a dog freaking out
Lunging at the fence,
I’m just a little kid
And I’m feeling tense,
About the whole situation
Because my sister was mauled,
By my cousins “good” dog
That needed to be overhauled,
With a 38-caliber
Bullet to it’s brain;
But my little sister
Suffered so much pain.

I can’t stand it
So, I start screaming,
Luckily, my Crossing Guard
Has stopped her day-dreaming,
And halts what she is doing
She calls for advice,
Realizing, she wants no other kid
To pay the price.
