Sandy Hook Tribute

Here is my small tribute to the parents of the children massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary. May you find peace in this time of internal war.

Tonight

Tonight
Some parents would give anything
To be able to nag their kid about chores
Video games
Homework
Bedtime

Tonight
Some parents would give anything
To be able to fight their kid about eating veggies
Taking a bath
Getting out of the bath
Dragging the cat into the bath

Tonight
Some parents would give anything
To feel like tearing their hair out in frustration
Annoyance
Even anger
Because their kid is giving them grief

Tonight
Some parents would give anything
To cradle their little monster in their arms just one last time
And so I promise to squeeze mine extra tight
Tonight
