Twenty Little Angels

Twenty little angels
crying out as one.
To Heaven they've ascended
Victims of the gun

A coward of a man
an unfamiliar name
Looking to make history
With psychopathic fame

I wish these suicidal
Self destructive fools
Would blow their brains out in their homes
And stay away from schools

So if your life's unbearable
And you've hit the skids
See a freakin' therapist
Please just spare the kids.

Thank you. Excellent poem.

ugh...agreed...pretty sad when you can get a handgun faster than you can get mental health help...

Oh, Otin, this is beautiful.

I've been trying not to think about it, or watch too much of the news coverage, because it's just too hard to deal with. Maybe that's selfish on my part, but I can't do it.

Very good, but unfortunately the wrong people will read it and the people who should - well they're too busy with their unhappy thoughts.

wonderful poem. Very sad, my thoughts and prayers are with the parents and families.

Oh you've said EGGSACTLY what I thought.

Just kill yourself if you're that messed up, but leave others, especially INNOCENT others out of it!

My heart hurts.

They were showing the little one's pictures yesterday. It was heartbreaking.

Joanna Jenkins said...

I'm with Brian-- Mental health is, for the most part, ignored in our country.

What a sad, sad time.

On another note...

Merry Christmas Otin. I hope you have a great holiday!

Annika said...

Well spoken.

It makes no sense whatsoever. Too much cruelty.
