last night, a sociopath dressed as Santa Claus
murdered eight people and wounded several more
and then set the house on fire
with racing fuel,
and then shot and killed himself,
in Covina, California.
and you might have been unsure
if we are living in troubled times,
where too many of the troubled,
the pained and the outcast,
can get their hands on guns,
and do horrible things,
like shoot eight-year-old little girls
in the face,
or if it is just media hype
to sell cars
no more doubt.
