Mass Shooting
(5/28/2021)


Brother Bollocks
works
distractedly

shaking
his head

thinking about
yet another
deadly attack
in America

they seem
almost daily
occurrences

tragedies

the loss
of life

the loss
of security

the loss
of faith

what truly
disturbed

angry
individuals

the perpetrators
must be

Brother Bollocks
bemoans
these tendencies

as he tests
another group
of electronic
circuit boards

devices destined
for the nosecones
of military
missiles

fearsome
armaments

that
he is
sure

are meant
to keep
the peace
