BrooksLooks@ ‘Thoughts & Prayers’

never thought we’d ever say
thoughts and prayers had become cliché

a great country watches
even its young people die

from a lack of reasonable measures
and a congress gone awry

so-called leader equivocate
dancing around as it gets late

so many lost now, whole communities vexed
a country in fear cries out, “who’s next?”
