The wrong girl

It was a Thursday afternoon when they caned Yurie
There was a softball game going on outside and
The Koreans were about halfway through their ice cream.

She was led into the office by an older girl
Was presented as a thief and told to sit on the concrete
She didn't protest and
The Koreans were about halfway through their ice cream.

The clock was showing 2 after 1pm
As her homeroom teacher fetched a stick
The fattest in the pile
And used it to usher her into the counselling room.
The door slammed

A raised voice muffled by door and carpet
The dull report of twelve stripes of the stick and
The Koreans were about halfway through their ice cream.

An innocent girl unable to walk
Red-streaked and tear-stained and
The Koreans were about halfway through their ice cream.
