What Do You Do?

What do you do
when they call you to school
and say that your child’s a bully?

Accuse them of lies,
despise, criticize,
or try to make sense of it fully?

What do you do
when they come home from school
tears welling up in their eyes?

Do you convey
suck it up for today,
you really don’t need to cry.

What do we do
when we turn on the news
and hear that a child has died?

We really can’t gloss
the terrible cost
of yet another suicide.
