The Little Girl


Just six, Veronica went movie-ing
to see the Batman film. She must have been
excited. But she met her death when sting
of gunfire ended all her everything.

I cannot think of words to write that bring
sense to this senseless act. A little child?
The plotting monster/killer, mindless, wild,
doomed others. Yes, he’s mad, if anything.

  1. Thank you for posting. :)

  2. I’m feeling that I should write about this, but it may be too early.

Write. Talk. Tell me everything.
