Life, society /
Twenty-six killed, twenty injured
in a small rural Texas town,
Sunday morning during services
in a neighborhood church.
Six hundred four killed or injured
in a Las Vegas Nevada
country music concert
hotel window massacre.
Place names engraved for the wrong
reason in nation’s awareness stone:
Aurora and Columbine, Colorado;
Sandy Hook Elementary, Connecticut.
The unthinkable has become the norm
as those with the duty to protect
have absconded with the reelection fund
and abdicated behind closed doors.
I wonder how many people like me sit
in a restaurant or other public place
weighing mentally which chair is best
to hurl at the now expected gunman.

I totally relate as to choosing defence and weapons in a everyday place in case ?
Its a sad sign of the troubled times
Thought provoking piece, linking title to the last stanza perfectly. My sympathies for all affected in the aforementioned tragedies.
