Poetry Magnum Opus

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.
