"Untitled" by Desiree Barnes

David Slaying Goliath by Peter Paul Rubens
I was sitting in the park writing an essay
when I heard someone shout.  "Somebody,"
help!"  My essay forgotten, I ran towards
the voice.  "Hey, leave her alone!" I
shouted.  I had just interrupted a bully
trying to beat up a kid.  "Fight someone
your own size," I added.  The bully
was a big kid.  I figured he was a
football player.  "Alright.  I'll fight
you if you think you're all that."  He
came at me but I dodged.  A police
cruiser came by and intervened.  I
walked back to my essay and then headed
home satisfied with what I had done.
