makings of a lone wolf

entry picture

a little guy

aims his toy gun

at the other kids

to him,they are the 'baddies'

playtime fodder

for his invisible bullets.


Each of his trigger pulls

seeing those in the imaginary crosshairs

pretending to die

plants an indelible overwhelming

feeling of power

in his young subconsciousness.


Just a kids game right?


But little are we able to determine

if and when

dark dark seeds are being propogated

and in which young minds?


But OH!

when over time

should they come to fruition

those reborn feelings of power

rekindled by so many wrong influences


then god help

the innocent 'baddies'!

For every lone wolf that might be a danger, there are the
shepherds and their sheepdogs, and the police officers with their canine companions ready to protect - and deter threats to their respective flocks.

it is to be hoped that by now as many as possible of these vulnerable establishments (i.e. Columbine ) have been better secured. What a nerve racking way to have to live. Yes, Stefan, I also think you have dealt with the subject very well indeed. Thank you. Jemima.

cheers chumsters!

there are of course the unarmed kind of lone wolves who try to disrupt peoples lives in many other ways

most are all too easy to deal with.
Later guys.

hard subject dealt with superbly. Brings back memories of Columbine and Dunblane.

Well done Stef.
