A little of this, and a little of that



Pain digs deep
and then we weep
tragedy so grim
hope grows thin.

Death in the halls
screams and calls
taking lives–
confusion thrives.

Tears flood
mixed with blood
terror shatters
fear batters.

A sick mind
mercy blind?
Nine more
a dreadful score.

Stop it NOW!
Stop it how?
Gun control
will make us whole?

The fight emerges
among the dirges
Remember this
within the dis.

Grief’s grip
pain’s lonely ship
set sail one October day
For those families I pray.
