Present State of Affliction

Present encumbrance

Life fraught with madness, world-mess

Holding hope’s thin hem

 Glory days unraveled, gone

Mental sleight of hand tricks fail


When will the lives of children, and other innocents, take priority over “rights” and guns and money and politics?  Enough with the verbal hand-wringing, it’s past time to take real action…before we lose a whole generation in a storm of bullets.
