ENOUGH WITH THE KILLINGS.
Another mass shooting.
Hearts are going out.
Prayers are being recited.
Sympathies a galore.
Thoughts are raining on the dead.
Dead people do not need our hearts,
Nor our prayers,
Nor our sympathies,
Nor our thoughts.
They would rather be alive.
Dead people have retired their hearts.
Their after-life abode, already earned,
Are unaffected, by our prayers.
Dead people are impervious to sympathies.
Dead people do not need our thoughts.
Vigils make us feel better,
But do not replace loved ones.
Remove guns from lunatics.
The solution for bad guys with guns,
Is not good guys with guns.
Enforce background checks.
Responsible gun ownership is the answer.
Not ostentatious display of sympathy,
Aimed at confusing the gullible.
Enough with the killings.
