The weather saga plays out.
Homecoming might be washed away.
We still haven’t done anything
About gun legislation.
Of all the things to table,
This is one I don’t understand.
All of us are impacted by guns
Whether legally owned or
So why do we hesitate
To make these weapons less available?
I’m not sure,
But I think
Compassion and common sense
Realizing that no solution is perfect
And that guns will always be around
Are two givens we need to accept,
But they are not excuses to do nothing.
Too many lives lost…
