Manchester

May 22, 2017, Prescott-

So many youths,

glad for an evening

of music that made them

dance,

on the floor

and in their hearts.

Nineteen are gone,

fifty hanging on,

because of one

with a detonator.

A light-hearted young woman,

seeking to make her fans’ lives

a bit more carefree,

sits crestfallen,

broken-hearted,

in a hotel room,

in Manchester.

  1. It is a nightmare! I heard it in the news yesterday.
    I pray for those who died at the concert, who came for it, to enjoy and dance, but taken away by a bomb.

  2. I too got the shock of my life, Gary, when I glanced at the Calgary Sun newspaper headline this morning and saw Manchester Massacre.

    What’s this about? I asked.

    Even more horrifying when I read inside.

    I too feel compelled to write about this although what I’ll write, I don’t yet know.
