Incomprehensible

What drives a gifted young 19 year old pianist, the son of an Elder of the Presbyterian Church to such levels of hate?

 

to 

Why would a son of privilege pick up an assault rifle and kill in a house of prayer?

“Social Media”

.

Bells should ring

for our peaceful brethren

mauled by the evil

come back from the grave.

Ring bells in Warsaw

for our peaceful brethren

revisited by the specter

you know so well.

In Paris, Brussels

Lublin and Krakow

Auschwitz Birkenau

Pittsburgh and Poway

be aware the evil lurks among us

We have seen him

staring from old posters

singing to our children

come to life again

Evil with the handsome face.

Ring your bells for our peaceful brethren

Throw open wide your holy doors

be aware he has returned

This time ye shall not wait.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    If only we knew the answer solving this modern-day problem, Frank. But as we don’t, it seems we are destined to see such things continue. You summed it up so well of course.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Although he does play well the piano, well, Hitler was a painter, enthusiast of paints and opera, he tried to get into some art school in Vienna. Still a crazy nut monster like this kid.
