Attempt Two


32 gunshots
32 bucket of cold blood
washed over those who
seem worthy of your fate

what give you the right
to decide an innocent person's
happily ever after
or determine their fates

those were our doctors,
our peace keepers,
these were our siblings,
our parents, our friends

drenched with the blank expression
pasted upon your darkened face
no mercy, no thought, and no purpose

you are our jesus christ
save us from our pathetic meaningless lives
these empty useless lives

he could have cured cancer,
she could have inspired others
he could have discovered peace
you could have stopped at one

take away our families
take away our futures
take away their rights
take away their choice

you cowardly sheep
covered with the blood of others
we see through the disquise
a wolf's sly grin peeking through

now you're caught,
unmasked and putting a new face
on the sights of the asians
all killer, all convicted rapists
entrapping souls, taking all dignaty and security

lets get the full fifteen minutes
of this pathectic need for fame
lets preasch on how we do right
while loved ones are ripped from their parents
nails, clawing, screams deafening

you are our savior
destroy the corruption of our ways
justiful your piggish actions
we are not as wise as thee
we cannot understand your ways

preach to us, mighty pastor,
we are clueless on our righteous paths.
please decide our destinies

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
