Sandy Hook Elementary School mass murders haiku


gun law - sandy hook
wakes us up
to its horror

sandy hook
the children we will
remember

sandy hook - when
breaking news to family
tears up both parties

hopelessly
she prays and waits for
an impossible answer

sandy hook - we try to piece
together the mind
of an autistic murderer

sandy hook - we try to break
free from the mind of
an autistic murderer

sandy hook
dec 21 one week
before

sandy hook - the wish
the end is never
for the children

wrong choices
the children die
to live a longer life
next life

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
