Another Day

Written for:  Poetic Asides #428 – Another ________

Another day, another shooting
another casket, another child lost.
More time wasting, leaders sit disputing.
Another day, another shooting
in blood and grief the country is stewing.
No action taken, look what it’s cost–
another day, another shooting
another casket, another child lost.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
