DEFENSE OF SIHANG WAREHOUSE By Alex, age 11











Defense of Sihang Warehouse
By Alex

Shanghai.
October 30, 1937.
Comrades scurry into position.
If I’m not going to fight,
why did I join the 88th Division?
Bombs boom.
Outside, bullets stab cement.
I run out the back
and stare ahead.
Three meters across, I whisper.
I can do it.
The creek cries.
From the opposite bank,
civilians cheer.
I Jump into the Suzhou’s rough waters
And swim.
