Tragedy struck in a cinema in Colorado,
A dozen people killed to satisfy a maniac's bravado.
A further 60 shot and injured as if in a game,
By a young man with just a speeding ticket to blight his name.
A shy loner going through life creating ripples so small,
Becoming immortal as an assasin making him feel so tall.
Hidden in society,invisible and without suspicion,
A methodical mass murderer on a mystery mission.
At a midnight screening of a Batman blockbuster he stood proud.
Throwing a smoke cannister and shooting indiscriminately into the crowd.
Some thought at first the attack was part of the show,
A silhouette shooting from behind the smoke in the front row.
6000 rounds of ammunition he purchased legally under state law,
And military style weapons passed to this man,no-one spotting a flaw.
Another American gun massacre,the World shakes its head,
TIGHTEN UP AMERICAN GUN LAWS IN RESPECT FOR THE DEAD.!!!
