I was sent this by a fellow blogger of mine and the words are so moving.
If you don’t read anything else today, please read this! I am pasting the poem here but you can check out the entire post here.
Watch the wall my Darlings.
Watch the wall my darlings as the gunman passes by, hush now everyone he will double back and kill us if he hears you cry.
No I don’t think he cares that guns are not allowed and I know he will not stop to think before firing into a crowd.
Try not to whimper as he will hear that too he has shot your little friends for less and he will do the same to you.
Here, cuddled up to me my darlings lets all play sleeping lions please keep calm or we will become more statistics in this crime.
Yes those are your friends my darlings but we cannot help them now. You are in my care here and to keep you safe I vow .
Who is he is my darlings I have no idea, but we need not think of him, he is of no consequence my dear.
What is important is that you stay here with me and make no noise for him to hear.
Oh! yes. Watch the wall my darlings as the gunman passes by,
Hush now everyone, he will double back and kill us if he hears you cry.
