Nine One One


My mom says "The number 911,
Is not a number you call for fun.
If someone is hurt with a knife or gun.
Get to the phone quickly, call 911 If the house is on fire call 911,
Hurry to the phone, run! run! run!
If a person is hurting someone else real bad,
Call 911, later you will be so glad. To all you parents and kids out there,
In an emergency dial 911, and say a prayer.
When you use 911 to get help, that's a job well done
This number is for serious business, not for fun.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
