Madness

guns-21

Like vignettes from a horror movie

permanently on replay

the images flash across the screen

once, twice, now almost daily

The debate among pundits continues

two steps forward and one step back

spinning wheels creating trails

of blue and red smoke

The tears of yet another family fall

too many names carved on a growing list

Each someone’s Everything

as we sit by helplessly

Hearts frozen and breath held

we wait as the next picks up his gun

Legal or illegal, what does it matter

We all suffer as he loads the chamber

Calls to action go unanswered

for problems that seem insurmountable

We pray to gods that have forgotten us

and beg that the madness stop
