The Cowards’ Sword

The Children of the Sun

beamed with morning mirth,

learning, glowing, and growing.

In sanctity, they gathered

and shared innocence together.

But, in the shadows, the

Twilight Savage unsheathed

his cowards’ sword,

and cut them…

and we all learned

that nothing would ever

done to stop

his evil.


I am watching news coverage of yet another American school shooting. How has my country come to this?
