A Sad Refrain

Murder.
Another death,
another one.
Another gun.
Again.
A sad refrain.
Drive-by, or not?
Targeted shooting,
or happenstance;
in this city,
you take a chance.
Again and again,
day after day,
you hear news
about a shooting,
somewhere or
another, but
it hits close
to home,
when it happens
at home.
Again.
The shame.
Another victim,
another gun.
Murder, again.
Another one.
