8 kids a day


Taken away
Not educated
Clothed or fed
Let out to play
Or tucked in bed
8 kids a day
Allowed to bleed
From shattered bones
And screaming wounds
8 kids a day
Are blown away
Deprived of love
Removed from life
Exiled without
A word to say
Mourned where they stood
Burned where they lay
8 kids a day
Killed by the hands
That hold the guns
Since Newtown
In the USA

It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
