Read that little article real quick, if'n you don't mind.

Ok, I'm not really wanting to get into a discussion of free speech. What I'm extremely confused about is this line of the poem contrasted with this quote from Justice Carlos Moreno:

Poem extract: "...For I can be the next kid to bring guns to kill students at school..."

Judge quote: "Of course, exactly what the poem means is open to varying interpretations because a poem may mean different things to different readers. As a medium of expression, a poem is inherently ambiguous."

Huh? Ψ
