    He looks through the crosshair
    Gunstock tightly tucked under his shoulder
    With each passing day
    He gets bolder and bolder

    With the squeeze of his finger
    Another life he will take
    Authorities are helpless
    Waiting for a mistake

    In daily news conferences
    So little light is shed
    Headshots from a distance
    Another child’s parent is dead

    Hopefully soon
    He’ll point the weapon at himself
    Ending the madness
    Nothing else to figure
    Lord give him courage
    So he will pull the trigger

    He's been consumed by the Blacklight
    walking on the darkside
    which leads to destruction
    sooner or later
    he will meet the Death Angel
    and the sharp silvery blade
    shall cut into his black soul
    and send him to an eternal hell.....

    Dark Bishop has spoken....

    just another reason
    we must all form a pact
    regardless of the season
    we must know when to act
    to act out on this hatred
    to fight against the malice
    these lives that they have wasted
    now are living in a palace
    but those that killed their poor souls
    will remain in pain and fire
    as soon as God says no more
    and causes them to expire

    ALL WILL RECEIVE THEIR JUDGEMENT IN THE END

    this sniper is maniacal
    he's unbelievably senseless
    l wish and desire death for noone
    but death of this sniper is all that seems necessary to be done
    or else Maryland will lose another child
    another mother
    sister or brother for no reason
    only because he/she feels like it's hunting season
    but let's not forget...
    America is a sniper...

    you know how many are there

    we assume it's only one person

    but i think it's plural actually

    just my two cents

    Hey Heartbeat ... it's been a minute :)

    I love the way you and the other poets "discuss" the current events poetically. While our dicussion forums aren't nearly as busy as the poetry forum, any breaking news topic can be found in our poetry archives.

    Nice work as usual.

    :heart:
