WEEPING FOR THE CHILDREN

WEEPING FOR THE CHILDREN
(Dedication to Sandy Hook Elementary)

You get up in the morning, with expectations of a usual day,
You get the kids off to school, after taking the time to pray.
Then suddenly there’s a phone call, it’s your child’s elementary school,
In a reverse nine, one-one, and the news is shockingly cruel.
Seemed there’d been a shooting, the children in harm’s way and danger,
Just the thought of it alone, brings fear, frustration, and anger!
How many have to die before we, as a nation,
Declare “Enough is enough” without politics or equivocation?
There is a “right to bear arms” granted in our nation’s Constitution.
But these “arms” are not what was meant, and we desperately seek a solution.
For there too is “the right to life” for which the scales must equate,
For the loss of even one innocent life, makes the “right to arms” too great!
Silent are our leaders today, on the “assault weapons ban,”
The “right to bear arms” boast, does not fit into this plan.
So again we ask the question, how many more have to die?
While we shake our heads and wrench our hands, only to ask the question: “Why?”
“Washington are you listening, America are you tired?”
The rights of this insistent few, only serves to make our rights mired.
Innocence of innocent, that’s who these Angels represent--
Angels among Angels there’ll remain-- no doubt from God, and Heaven sent.
Twenty in all lost in a day, the average age was six,
C’mon America we must do better, and this we have to fix!

P. Wallace-Keaton, 12/14/12
