A Massacre Carol:
“The Tragedy at [insert here]”
[16. December 2012]
Every now and then handfuls die
Not by indulgent hands
Of the world’s oldest profession
But by murdering ones who practice
The world’s oldest pastime.
Forcing us to see
That even they are made
In some form or another of one or another god’s
Image – deconstructing creation
And ever eager –
Fearless to throw the first stone.
