Mentally Perturbed

Children shot down in a school again
It’s the collateral cost of freedom I’m told,
by a labeled unstable son-of-a-gun kin

He had “wild horses roaming free” in his head,
that’s what the county doctors said
As the grief-stricken soul of a community bled

His eighteenth birthday gift was a death wish:
Killing innocent kids was at the top of the list
An unpredictable behavior everybody missed

The government officials declare,
the young man was “emotionally disturbed”
But bullets don’t grey matter care

Forensic fingers paint the crime scene “evil red,”
as automatic revulsion smears their semi-stoic conscience
Cold bloody memories, they just can’t ever shed

And the true metal believers idol-ly say,
the unhinged shooter was “mentally perturbed”
Seems bullets get asylum alter ricochet
