Andy Warhol's Quote, with an NRA Rewrite

In the future
everyone will know
someone caught
in a mass shooting,

but the wound
won't be forgotten
after 15 minutes.

So, Wayne LaPierre,
where the fuck
is that Good Man
With A Gun?

  3. The shooting today in San Bernardino was at Inland Regional Center, where my daughter has been a client since 3 months old. It's less than 20 miles from my house. It's a quiet agency that helps developmentally disabled people get connected to social services. Who the fuck would want to kill anyone there? Thankfully, my daughter wasn't there today. My love and prayers to those who lost loved ones.

      peace to you, and those you knew and know. ~

  4. This is such terrible news... negative energy tends to affect several people which in turn leads to chaos. Good to know that your daughter is safe.

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  5. I couldn't believe my eyes when I heard the news. I'm so glad your daughter is ok, but I am so sorry for all the people who aren't...and I'm so upset with the NRA idiots, particularly Wayne LaPierre.

  7. Where indeed! Putting aside the idiocy that is Wayne LaPierre, your poem is full of the energy of pain. So glad your daughter wasn't there, and wish no one was. I can imagine many more poems growing from the travesty of the attack on the facility and people. Your first stanza is devastating.

    1. Thanks, yes, safety may be an illusion, but there are certainly things that can be done to diminish this reckless destruction.

  11. Oh no! I am so glad your daughter is safe, but who's next? The world is an angry,
    dangerous place, and Wayne, in my opinion, is a selfish idiot.
