Pamela’s winning poem is below:
Adrenaline on high We want to be In the know We may be told, “Be ready!” We want to stay, Afraid to leave We may be told “You have to go.” We want to be In the know Alert systems Change year to year We want the best to inform. Land lines don’t get texts Fear runs thick and dense What if I don’t know? The body wants safety The mind control The heart security Please, Put us in the know Scanner sites. Social media. Friends that call. Neighbors that come. Local radio. Help us to know. We want guidance To be In the know
