Freshman, from MacArthur High in Texas, built a clock.
Showed it to his teachers who, to that poor freshman's shock,
Called police, believing that he'd brought a bomb to school.
Ahmed was interrogated, all because some fool
Couldn't tell a nerdy kid apart from terrorists.
So, in NASA tee-shirt and with hand-cuffs on his wrists,
Five cops took Ahmed Mohamed off to Juvie Hall
Where, at last, they let the kid give mom and dad a call.
He's still facing charges but he's home... Not in a cell.
'though the school's suspended him, perhaps it's just as well;
Doesn't sound as if they've got a lot to offer him...
Faculty has demonstrated that they're rather dim.
