Sanctuary: Be Safe In An Unsafe World. 2010.

watch the body count grow
when tiny tots near the t.v.
turn and ask you: "Why?!" ....
check your gun, pet your shepherd,
lock your doors and watch them sleep

    There is so much danger in today's world that I am reluctant to watch the news. There are very few reports that are uplifting and most of it adds stress to our lives. I lock my doors, but will never buy a gun. Still, I can understand why you would feel compelled to do so. Very thought-provoking poem about the sanctuary you have created to protect your home and loved ones. Best wishes in the contest, Gerard. Love, Carolyn

    ahhhhhh happiness is a warm gun? Ignorance is bliss (Deb returns to ostrich position) I wasn't sure what you thought & or if you were teasing me on Foreword:She of the Stone? Soup Mail me? what's crystal? and do you thinkthe verse is laughable (fretting) and you are NOT the underdog you are the superpup!
