Terror in the pews

 In the church where God's spirit dwells
 The bible study was going well
 A stranger walks in and joins the group
 And then to  evil he  would soon stoop

 Gunshots echo through the pews
 As innocent blood begins to spew
 The same people who had treated him so well
 Were shot in cold blood by this demon from hell

 The healing process has now begun
  But when will this senseless violence be done
 Tears of a nation once more are shed
 As gunshots echo, and innocents lay dead....

    Joseph, I rarely watch news and did not know the details of this case. It is sure tragic. Thanks for the poem.
