Sorry to interrupt your program

The wake of horror

Brings with it calls for action

There’s a problem though.

Politicians don’t

Listen to the peoples will

….they’ve gerrymandered it

“Thoughts and prayers” we’ve heard.

For a decade now

Long ago they chose to favor

Guns over children.

So. Pressing forward seems…hard.

But it’s not.

Outrage is the start…but…

Vote local.

School Board

City council

County council

Fuck, make sure you know who the PTA President is.

These local yokels

Impact your life

And in the wake of horror

It’s the start of change.

(I hope)
