Poetica: Air raid to active shooter drills

Nineteen forty-three.

Cowering beneath my desk,

listening for Zeros.

 

Two thousand eighteen.

Under bulletproof blankets

children fear classmates.

 

Seventy-five years.

Puer puero lupus –

guns keep switching hands!

 

At life's grand buffet,

violence feeding on fear –

has anything changed?
