Sandy Hook

Recommended Posts

Their families awoke to start the day

 

the kids off to school without much to say

 

sitting in classrooms without any care

 

unbridled innocence in pig tailed hair

 

their miniature bodies and developing brains

 

trained on Barbie dolls and choo choo trains

 

in an instant and out of the blue

 

evil incarnate comes blasting through

 

shots rang out and blood was drawn

 

so much innocence now was gone

 

he killed twenty children and six adults

 

its with the devil himself that he consults

 

families destroyed a community in grief

 

those who have lost will feel no relief

 

words don’t exist to describe this event

 

all we can do is reflect and lament

 

the nation mourns and expresses its rage

 

at the evil displayed on a national stage

 

grab hold of your kin and give them a hug

 

and if they ask why just give them a shrug

Hi Dan, Welcome to PMO! I am sorry the events of Friday have prompted your first poem posted. I have to admit that the feelings of the day are still too raw for me and I couldn't finish reading your piece. I will come back to it in a few days for a better look.

thank you Dan for not patronizing the idiot by name. sad day in the lot of humanity. this mother should have never let her son have access to her weapons. stupid is stupid does. this guy had learning disabilities and his mother taught her son to love shooting. both are dead so we will never know much about the truth, but hearsay. good poem.
