Tales of a 4th Grade Nihilist
The latest issue of Dover Community Notes contained the winning entries from a Student Poetry Contest. For the most part, the prose and verse spewed with darkness and angst. One poem detailed the shotgun barrel suicide of a picked on teen. Another poem detailed a game of Tag as if it were told from the perspective of a London harlot stalked by Jack the Ripper. The crushing Hand of God made for the subject of another ode.

WHAT!
ever happened?
