"Goodnight Las Vegas"
Goodnight Las Vegas…
Your neon lights subdued;
Gone dark –
In mourning of the fifty-nine,
and sympathy for the five hundred…
the very latest legacy,
of evil acts pursued.
What have we become?
Where did we go astray?
Mindlessly using cold hard steal,
to impose our debased and sinful will –
In such a vile; dishonorable way…
A personal resolve for self-satisfaction,
through senseless and selfish violent reaction –
Always imposed at the expense of others;
No empathy, or compassion
for their sisters, or brothers.
My eyes are burning,
and my ears are aching –
from the malevolent choices
so many are making.
And while debate over weapons
continue with great force and vigor -
I far more fear the madness,
of the mind who pulls the trigger.
