Good Points

Found poem from my fabulous, freedom fighter friend Owen’s Facebook status of approximately 7PM on December 17, 2012.

By the tremendous
outpouring of horror, regret and despair
rregarding the tragic deaths
of so very many children,
 I must say that I truly
 feel touched, and truly feel moved.
It pleases me to learn that
O so very many shall
now finally protest the senseless
deaths of children everywhere.

 Those energies
 I now see devoted to gun control
 shall also surely now be similarly
 devoted to fighting homelessness,
 austerity measures,
 preservation of the social safety net,
 combating domestic violence,
 and opposing a drone warfare foreign policy.
