The Least of It All

I am a senior in highschool.
Yesterday, I was with my friend.
The sun was very strong,
And we were waiting for the rest of our friends.
A guy walking by came very close to where we were standing and said,
“Of course, you are standing in the shade so you can jump on top of one another!”
He continued to say similar things as he walked past us.
That was the least graphic thing he said.

Then he stopped and wanted to continue,
But I screamed in his face and cursed his mother.
He looked at me in shock, then walked away.

We were standing next to a police station.
The officers had heard and seen everything,
But not a single one of them moved an inch.
I mean, why would they if they themselves harass us sometimes?
