The New Norm

Tinker

A New Norm

Killing season,
no reason why,
listen and see
nobody safe
or free from threat, no relief.

In church or school
its not cool but
the rule of hate
takes the bait and
we wait for the gunman to stand.

So when the gun
fires on fun, it
has won again.
We cry sin, we
can't win. Action is what we need.

Bumping because it happened again, and again, and again.  Rough week.

Action, indeed. The frustration is palpable.

Hey, I don't want any of you poets threatening to shoot up the place! Only with poems! :excl:

Alright it's okay to shoot up the place with a camera, too ... :blush: But yes, art (i.e. poems) is the place to get excited, even angry. I missed this the first time around. Nice work, Judi. 😉
