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...
