they send their thoughts and prayers

they send their thoughts and prayers                    December 2, 2015
they send their thoughts and prayers
again and again and again.

and we ask why lord, oh lord, why oh lord
have you forsaken us, forsaken us, forsaken us?

the shots ring out again and again and again
pow! pow! pow!
the children cry and die
we cry and die
the women cry and die

a classroom splattered in blood and brains
of first graders
dead mothers in a doctor’s office

they send their thoughts and prayers

do they know that this is hell?

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
