Grief of the Aurora Tragedy

A dozen lives murdered in Aurora;
the killer waits for justice in a cell;
the nation declares the real culprit
not Holmes, a pawn, but ideology.

Obama’s gun control shot that kid, some say,
others accuse a Tea Party conspiracy,
and some even blame the feminists, but
not Holmes, a pawn to ideology.

Whatever hint suggesting influence
becomes the evidence the tragedy
was orchestrated by the other team,
not Holmes, a pawn of ideology.

Meanwhile, the real killer’s forgotten
along with victims whose names we won’t learn, mere statistics on PowerPoints
to win debates against people we hate.
