Mass Murder in Orlando
            by U. Liberace Dews

The deadliest mass shooting ever in America
occurred this morning at the Pulse, Orlando, Florida.
The gun-clad murderer was shot and killed by the police;
but only after there were over fifty casualties.
He cried out, “Allahu Akbar,” as he displayed his hate
in highly-trained, methodical, precise shots…deadly, straight.
It’s Ramadan and homosexuality’s a sin;
the friends of the Islamic State have called these deaths a win.
They cover social media with savage messages.
One wonders what the action of one lone wolf presages.


Bruce Wise: “U. LIBERACE DEWS is a poet whose concerns include that of the homosexual community.”
