Rated: E · Poetry · Cultural · #2251385
A tribute to the response to violent shootings - a poem.
A moist conclusion, sent for passing;
Structured by the frights amassing -
Higher totals left us guessing -
Murder agents further pressing. 

Law enforcement’s active guidance,
Structured focus, edgy license;
Trucking in the lurid pockets;
More devices, careful dockets. 

Armed and ready, take no chances;
Horror, grief, and stricken glances;
A violence stuns our noble living -
The holiness of saints forgiving...

Just replenished, gears reflected.
Response now challenged, more detected. 
Facing death, enduring gravity -
A speed and effort ends depravity...
