The Sad State of America

Sun, 05/27/2018 - 21:44 -- ChaseK8

It's appalling, 

that the government has no problem controlling a woman's body

but refuses to control guns. 

It's insane, 

the sheer ignorance and deranged blame...

priority placed on objects, instead of lives.

It's idiotic, psychotic, senseless...

irresponsible, preposterous...

It's outright mad. 

It's horrifying, 

the way that hate festers silently

stalking prey through the steel-lined walls

the sunny day,

painted with young blood to a soundtrack of misery

and terror.

It's chaos, calamity, tragedy.

It's horrid,

It's grim...

It's reality,


It's infuriating,

the oblivion

the fictitious outrage that creates a political center-stage,

yet, nothing is done. 

It's disheartening,



the sorry state of America today.
