First Columbine

first columbine
of the season

something notable
a thing of common beauty

our world is a mess
due to our actions

(tiny old woman said)
you give them guns
they'll use them

so we watch in horror
as our neighbours
shoot their children

none of your business
they say if you mention

questions arise
considering bearing arms

was it a good thing
or a very bad mistake

first columbine
