Twice - Poem by Amy Jones

I heard Newfie got shot.
And now he’s dead.
I didn’t know if I was supposed to feel bad.

No one found him for a couple days.
I don’t know who found him,
But I know he got it in the face
With a shot gun,

When I heard that I felt bad.
But not for Newfie.

I never met him,
But I knew him.
But everyone knew him.

I never thought to care that I didn’t feel bad.
