Another Boston Massacre

On 15 April, this was a horrific episode.
In the afternoon, three bombs would explode.
This happened near the end of the Boston run.
Scores of casualties resulted after the bombing was done.
As least two persons were killed in the process.
This senseless act caused a huge amount of distress.
The responsible party has not come forward.
Whoever you are, you are a spineless coward.

    It is true Robert, I too say that they are cowards. Sometimes I wonder - what makes them tick? Thanks for sharing...... Lucilla

    Reading this after they got pursued. Long time no see, Robert. I like to drop in on you sometimes and see what you are up to!! I hope you won't have to keep penning poems about tragedies back east. Just too many of them these days!!

    That is a tragedy, unfortunately i passed 16 years of war bombs destroyed our sitting room ceiling, thank God no one was sitting, my son was kidnapped for 3 days, came back home in one piece, bombs while i was at work, had to hide under the tables with our customers.....Hell it was. I hope it never happens again in Boston or anywhere else. Terry xoxo

    I agree Robert, this is terrible and quite scary. It seems as if every time we turn around another tragedy, another attack. Nice to see your presence here on the soup though. Hugs and luv, Gail
