Jennifer Lagier- A Poem


Please Tell Me Something That Will Help

It’s another weekend of hate,
mayhem and blood.
Unbalanced men wield guns
with high capacity magazines.

Politicians wring their hands,
spew opportunistic sound bites,
fling feces-like rhetoric
that simply turns up the heat.

Body counts escalate.
“If you had guns on the other side,
you wouldn’t have had the tragedy
that you had,” The Donald intones.

An acerbic blogger suggests,
“Swap penile implants for assault weapons.”
After each massacre, sales sky-rocket.
NRA shills oppose any bans.



Jennifer Lagier is an aging hippie who lives beside the Pacific Ocean with three spoiled dogs plus a small gopher snake, and dreams of moving to Spain.
