October 2, 2017, Prescott-
We’ve lost another fifty or so, of humanity’s better angels.
People who just wanted to have a good time,
leave the rat race behind, for a day or three,
found the rats were relentlessly pursuing them.
I have no sympathy for anyone who thinks
that life should revolve around the Exalted Self,
even when that narcissism is cloaked in pain.
One whose life experience is one, in which he
has drawn pain to himself like a magnet,
does not get to decide, as a self-appointed demigod,
what others should do, when they may do it,
and whether they are allowed to live past it.
The weapon really doesn’t matter.
Last night, it was a plethora of loaded firearms.
In past bloodlettings, it was a bomb, or a number thereof.
Vehicles have been accessories of said explosives,
in Brute Fests, from Oklahoma City, through 9/11/01 (and 9/11/12),
to Paris, Nice, Berlin, Bali, Brussels, San Bernardino, Orlando and Manchester.
This time, the brute tried to rule, literally, from on high.
There needs to be an end to anonymity,
to the culture of fences, walls and locking people out.
The weapons are accessories.
It’s the mindset that slaughters.
