Terror in the Dark Night

Death revolver
Everywhere aiming
Victims' lives hanging bats
In the dark night when
Lucifer strikes

Way to make it dark and current....I have no idea what goes through someones mind that would make them want to do something like this.

Shudder. Kind of goes with my poem . . . this kind of violence feels supernatural in its randomness. . . just like its randomness fit a pattern.

Brian Miller said...

ugh...what a horrible act...i was listening to it and reports as we were driving down today...is there no end?

Lots of power in very few words. Nicely written!

Your brevity bites as those bullets...sharp and unrelenting. Great write, Laurie.

It does plant the seed that perhaps we're never safe..certainly portrays devilish actions.

What a creative response, Laurie.

Well said, Laurie....on the radio news all afternoon, they were talking about why automatic weapons are even AVAILABLE to people.

Marian said...

What a timely prompt coinciding as it did with the tragedy in Colorado. How to explain evil doing? I think your poem hits a mark or two.
