Deal with the Fact

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

This kind
of mass

doesn’t happen
in other
advanced countries.

Our power . . .
to do

ravage’s stain
of hatred

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

A poet,
a politician,
a librarian.

Six women
three men

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

Terrorist attack!
Victims named . . .
and remembered?
