Shootings at Empire State Building


Sunfilled late August Day
Looming Dark Tower
Screams and sirens
Not just another shooting
Oh, that I can say "just another"
Families on vacation
Bullets have pierced the Heart of Gotham
And all we can do is Pray
In our own Ways


I am not much of a poet but I cannot say all that I feel right now about the Empire State shootings....some will say it was inevitable--how awful that we can feel ourselves nodding in unwilling agreement to that
