school shooting

Another school shooting
And this is the worst
Can somebody tell me
The cause of this curse

They say the shooter
A man with two guns
Came on the campus
To shoot anyone

What kind of demon
Would do something like this
Leave a whole town
In such emotional distress

    Have we learned anything? These terrible shootings reflect badly on our security. You capture the horror vividly in your work. Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    A truly sad event indeed... Mental illness has never been taken care of in this country... All the publicity they run grabs the attention of mentally ill people... causing them to try the same thing... The press whipped every one into a frenzy... including the mentally ill. It's extremely hard to put people into an institution (even for a short while) and requires a judge to approve it. These people run free with family too overloaded to help them. The family's need more help as well as the ill.

    I don't believe anyone will ever solve this mystery. This was an egregious thing to do which will unfortunately be repeated in the future. You have described that infamous incident rather well in simple-to-read wording.

    Very good poem and very good question. I wish I had the answer, but I don't. Thanks for sharing and for letting me know about being featured. I didn't know. I hope you liked the poem. Lucilla

    Oh, John, I actually think this horrifying act is only the beginning of what we will see as Dec. 21st approaches. Whenever there is a doomsday prediction, evil people start popping out of the woodwork. There have been many doomsday predictions in the past, and always there is evil people who take innocent lives. Stay safe, my friend, stay at home. hugs, Catie :)

    Dear POET, John, I can not bring myself together enough to write a "Dear John letter" A Demon fighting for his existence, knowing if he fails at bringing sorrow and pain to all his demise will be eternal Damnation. Superb Pen. Thank-YOU for YOUR Gracious comment on "Core Belief" LOVE ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry
