The grief at yet more crazy killing
is ripe to explode from me in words.
How could any human being
inflict such terror city-wide?
What do they want, these murderers?
No adequate adjectives exist
in any language to express
revulsion for such unprovoked
barbarity. Innocent victims out
in search of music, sport or food
massacred in blood ice-cold
by misbegotten savagery.
..Absolution will not be given
..by any God in any heaven.
Miz Quickly’s prompt today asks us to write a sonnet. The shock of last night’s events is still too raw for coherent writing, so I hope you’ll forgive this clumsy attempt.
