We say “Never again!”
But they are empty words
More blood, and ripped, tender, young flesh
More horror
More gut wrenching images
More yellow tape
More death
More grief and sorrow
More shatter lives
More hopelessness
More thoughts and prayers
More hypocrisy
More impotence
More numbing
More normalizing
More guns
God forgive us
As we sacrifice our children
To the highest bidder
