How Many More? (Poem)
How Many More?
How many more mothers need to be left on the streets, crying, before they even start trying?
How many more ambulances need to be called, before they even act appalled?
How many more black coats need to be brought, before they even give it a second thought?
How many more flowers need to be placed, before they look the problem in the face?
How many more babies have to ask "why isn't daddy home?", before they try to make the streets a safe zone?
How many more bodies have to lie dead on the floor, before they just make the law?
Every time they sell a gun, someone loses a son,
Every time they sell a bullet, some idiot is gonna pull it,
Every time they pull that trigger, a child won't grow any bigger.
is a human right.
So when is it going to stop?
NO MORE SILENCE WE NEED TO END,
