next school shooting poem #when

next school shooting poem #when

my daughter teaches in a school
where every classroom every office
every corridor every restroom has a
button if one is hit every area police
car every area police station instantly
is alerted there’s a shooter in this
school it bypasses 911 which has to
answer get data while precious seconds
are lost precious lives can be snuffed
in that instant -- don’t worry we won’t
lose our second amendment rights we
can still take our ammo assault gun
shoot whenever wherever whatever
whyever whoever we want it’s the law

footnote: on an average day in this
country seven kids 19 or under are
killed by guns. We average about one
school shooting a week. And so far
this year toddlers have shot 23 people.
The gun shop thief in last week’s poem,
the one from my Wisconsin township,
has been caught after ten days, but with
only five of the 18 guns he stole.
