    Was supposed to be early closings.

    Chief, I sense and agree as you have written here, 'tis the kids that are the most important; the schoolyard swings.

    full swings
    sway into the colder winds

    At any other time this could be simply read on a literal level where the children have no need to worry about election results.

    Now 'tag' comes into its own, and we will see who is tagged, and how.

    Subtle layers from a master haiku/senryu writer.

    warm regards,
