Poem #1700

El Paso and Dayton

Two more mass shootings in the last 24 hours,
More scenes of mourning: candles and flowers,
There’s always talk of thoughts and prayers,
But where’s a politician that really cares?
Demands for gun control erupt nationwide,
But on that topic, there’s a large divide,
Inaction with legislation may seem strange,
But gun owners and corporations don’t want change,
It seems money talks, but death does not,
This is what happens when politicians are bought,
Can’t we honor the second amendment in the constitution,
But also find a real solution?
This issue can’t be that hard to solve,
Maybe the second amendment just needs to evolve,
Is it just a matter of getting rid of assault guns?
We can’t continue to lose our daughters and sons,
