George Zimmerman - Poem by Darwin Henry Beuning

Neighborhood Watch
'Slayer of Youth'

26 February 2012
Trayvon Martin
Shot to death

Found not guilty
By an earthly court
Set free, he lives on

Fast forward, May 2016
George has the audacity
'To make a buck'
Selling the gun that killed
With online bidding
Starting at five thousand

In the post
He wrote
The gun was
'An American Firearm Icon'
There were hopes
That the Smithsonian
Would bid

Will be held accountable
By a higher court

    This is a case in which human justice is inadequate and there is only hope that divine justice will prevail eventually.
    I don't really like the NRA being such a powerful lobbying group in the U.S. In New Zealand also, the gun laws are not strict enough. The firearms registration was just not there. It would have been one of the causes of the mass shootings in Christchurch.
