It’s Coming!

“It’s Coming!” Friend, Sept. 1974, inside front cover

It’s Coming!

Last year I was little.

I stood here so still,

And watched till the school bus

Came over the hill.

It took Joe and Ellen

And my sister Lee.

It took my pal, John,

But it didn’t take me.

Today it is coming.

Just wait till you see,

The big yellow school bus

That’s coming for me!
