Parklands 17 Angels


Seventeen angels all in a row looking at earth down below
Seventeen angels who didn’t stand a chance
Against a gunman’s steady advance.
their lives taken in their prime , and not knowing the reason Why .
Seeing the pains of their family and friends and praying
For change that will make this end.
Columbine . Sandy Hook, Las Vegas ,and now Parkland
We as citizens have to take a stand.
Raising the age limit may slow it down , but automatic
Weapons can still be found.
Automatic weapons should be banned
With single shot guns and rifles we hunted and defended this land.
How many more lives must be taken ?
Before the politicians are awakened.
