THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 256

Plague

The faint traces
of spring
began glowing on the horizon,
and a plague took over the school.
Boys spread the disease,
and girls suffer its effects.
A plague called pregnancy.
The gift that keeps on giving.
Worst of all,
some of the victims
bragged about it.
Smarter ones hid it,
but was that really such a smart choice?
Even worse
were the girls who wanted
to get pregnant.
Why would anyone want a child
when they are still a child?
But high school
is about deciding
how you want
your future to be,
so I suppose
it is one career path.
