Deal with the Fact

Published June 20, 2015 by kdorholt

My found poem (from two articles) written after the terrorist shooting in Charleston. Once more, I am confounded.

Deal with the Fact

This kind
of mass
violence

doesn’t happen
in other
advanced countries.

Our power . . .
to do
something!

Confront
ravage’s stain
of hatred

on our streets,
in ours schools,
houses of worship.

A poet,
a politician,
a librarian.

Six women
three men
killed.

At Bible study,
stopping to pray,
(so-called Holy City)

Terrorist attack!
Victims named . . .
and remembered?

“Obama on Charleston: shootings have happened ‘too many times’ “ (video) The Guardian: 18. June 2015. Net.

Glenza, Jessica and Lauren Gambino. “The Charleston shooting victims: a poet, a politician, a librarian, women of faith.” The Guardian: 18 June 2015. Net.
