Their Innocence is Gone


Their Innocence is Gone

Kindergarten children sit at little tables
With tiny plastic multi-colored chairs
Making chains with strips
Of red and green construction paper.
Holiday music plays in the background.

A stranger enters
Their innocence is goneā€¦
Screams, fears,
Running, tears
Sirens screech.
Parents beseech.
Death stained air-
Prayers for answers.
Families crumble.
President stumbles.
Anti gun deluge.
Press accuses.
Community mourns.
NRA warns.
Homicidal malcontent
Kills our most innocent.
Please, stop the violence!
