It was time for Shara to get ready for school.

She didn’t know why she continued attending Harrison Creek High School, especially when it was revealed that there were several students that were secretly running the school. How and why no one informed the principal of that never ceased to astound her.

She was going to be doing the revealing, mind you.

Shara got dressed and went to the kitchen to make herself some lunch. She could care less about the “school’s” policy on homemade lunches. Her parents weren’t about to pay for school lunches, not when she could always bring her own lunch from home.

With lunch made and sitting by her bag, Shara sat down to breakfast, being aware that even though the school served breakfast, she wasn’t about to eat anything that was prepared by the cafeteria workers. Most of the food, according to the students, wasn’t even fit for human consumption at all.

After breakfast, Shara grabbed her things and headed to the park to wait for the school bus. Several kids had been there during the time that she had her breakfast and made her lunch. Those poor kids had to follow the “school’s” rules or else they would risk getting in serious trouble.

But not Shara, who was known as a risk taker. She would not follow the rules of a few misguided “students” whose one desire is to take over the school and not allow the principal to do his job. She knew better than that.

FAWM song: Classroom Blitz (parody of The Ballroom Blitz by The Sweet)

Note: This song is not particularly a happy song, as it describes a school shooting.

[spoken] You wouldn’t believe the day that I had, the day that I’ll always remember. It all began with a bang and it ended with a bloody mess. Just sit down and I’ll tell you a story that you won’t soon forget. It was once a normal day until it became…a classroom blitz.

[singing] It was nothing more than just another normal day / I didn’t feel like going to school, ain’t got nothing to say / my only friend couldn’t be here, which is very sad / I think that he’s wasting his time dealing with his brother’s silly problems / a girl was sitting next to me with a look of fear on her face / she kept saying that someone was going to kill us all / people around us kept telling her to shut up / but I knew that she was telling the truth, something sinister was in the air…

Oh yeah, it was nerve-racking, / not to mention insane / the teacher had stopped teaching, / when a shadow fell on the door…

And then some boy in the back yelled, “We’re under attack!” and it turned into a classroom blitz / And the girl next to me said, “You better run, because it’s a classroom blitz…” / Classroom blitz / Classroom blitz / Classroom blitz / Classroom blitz…

Oh when the shots rang out, all hell broke loose / people everywhere were screaming and hitting the floor / the girl who warned us just sat there, saying, “See, I told you so.” / I’m on my knees, praying to God to please, please let me live / who was this shadow, why does he hate us so / what had we done to him to get the treatment that we’re getting?

Oh yeah, it was dangerous, / not to mention monstrous / even the teachers were running, / when the shadow fell on the school

And then some boy in the back yelled, “We’re under attack!” and it turned into a classroom blitz / And the girl next to me said, “You better run, because it’s a classroom blitz…” / Classroom blitz / Classroom blitz / Classroom blitz / Classroom blitz…

Well, there was chaos everywhere, everyone was running for their lives. / You thought this was a disaster movie the way things were going. / I could only hope that I could escape from place alive. / I just wish that I never heard the classroom blitz…

Blitz
Blitz
Blitz
Blitz

And then some boy in the back yelled, “We’re under attack!” and it turned into a classroom blitz / And the girl next to me said, “You better run, because it’s a classroom blitz…”

And then some boy in the back yelled, “We’re under attack!” and it turned into a classroom blitz / And the girl next to me said, “You better run, because it’s a classroom blitz…”

Classroom blitz (It’s a classroom blitz) / Classroom blitz (It’s a classroom blitz) / Classroom blitz (It’s a classroom blitz) / Classroom blitz (Yeah, it’s a classroom blitz)…
