Throwback Thursday: November 9

She'd been so sure all day, it was a prank,
The kid who'd told her, how could he have known?
They'd been in school all day, fish in a tank,
Their campus closed, their motions watched (She'd grown
Annoyed at this, and many months were left
'Til graduation set her free). But Chris
Insisted that the Wall was falling, kept
On whispering so in hallways. Wouldn't this
Be something they'd be summoned for to see
On TV in the library? But Sue
Was thinking of her time zone. Germany
Was many hours ahead. She learned 'twas true
When Tom and Garrick said so. Chris, that sneak
Kept secret how he'd learned it for a week!
