Santa Claus with Guns and Fire

last night, a sociopath dressed as Santa Claus
murdered eight people and wounded several more
with guns
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 tormented,
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
and blankets-with-sleeves.

no more doubt.
