Again, a poem

(on the shooting in Las Vegas on October 2017, where 59 people were killed.)
Again
a man takes a mulitshooter
takes aim
declares war on
people we doesn’t know
but hates
Again
gunshots
bullets hit people
and they die
and they run
and hide
they want to live
Again
the questions
Who is he?
Why did he?
Again
the leaders cry
and pray
and mourn
Again
The cry
“Take those things away
or more people will die!”
Again
the reply
“They’re our freedom
for which the victims
gave their lives!”
It happens
again
and again
until
-WHEN?
