Again

Everyday news: guns or a knife.
Daily breath, a nightly death.

Loss of life.
Never pretty.

Someone was killed
last night in this city.

Perhaps, in your city as well.
It will happen again.
It happens, again and again.

A loss.
Nothing gained.
It’s sad.

Even worse, sadly, it will
happen again. And again.

It is not accepted, but
it is expected,
again and again.

Sadly.

There are always questions,
again and again, but
never are there answers.
