Another Horror

A man walked into a shul 
where there was a baby being named
Fired a rifle - killed ten worshipping peacefully
Another horror in our land 
When will it end? 
After each horror we 
trot out the platitudes and express shock 
America is a great land in many, many ways
But we have a dark part of our nature 
Which sometimes surfaces into our democracy 
Let the hate stop! 
Let the horrors stop now!
Our land is being undermined
and hope seems a distant dream 
Well, we must persist
We have no choice

Well penned, Matthew; I think that our country is falling fast; our civilization is in the process of failure; where will it end? It's up to us poets to make people aware; you've done well.

I agree with you, Matthew. The shock only seems to last until the next horror. I think the current state of our country is only making things worse. Well said...

When I saw the news last night I had tears of disbelief Matthew, such a terrible hate crime at what should have been such a memorable happy day:-( My thoughts are with the Jewish community who must have been rocked by this atrocity:-( hugs Jan xx
