When does something like this end?
When will it lose its prominent place
In the list of things we see around us
Hear about, know from experience
Pass on the street, we read about in
The newspapers we have left to read
Witness on the evening news in
Between ads for the latest meds to help
Us along, make things easier to take?
When will we have better things to think
About, to write about, our better selves,
The better angels of our nature coming
Forward to put an end to some, if not all
Of things like this – that’s when.
