Rinse and Repeat

Posted by on Dec 16, 2012 in 2012, Choken Word


I hold them tighter now
see their beauty how
they glow inside
time passes so fast

another school shooting
punched me in the gut
woke me from a rut
from material matters

something about a fiscal cliff
or slope
or curve
economic gloom

something about a war
in a distant land
troops deployed
without a plan

something about money
to pay for bills
to find security
from insecurity

I’m tearing up
with my wife
with my country
with the world

about the shooting
of little boys and girls
the same age as mine
as the horror uncurls

as reporters feast
rinse and repeat
no answers, only mystery
rinse and repeat

lacking answers
not knowing why
we hug and we cry
about a world gone mad
