Oslo Tragedy - A Poem

Updated on July 21, 2014

A Poem for the Oslo Tragedy

Terror rears its ugly face everywhere it seems

Whether home grown or from the outside, it shocks and saddens no matter where one lives and what flag holds ones allegiance.

I am writing this the day after the bombing in downtown Oslo and the incessant senseless shootings at the island youth camp.

When I Heard of Oslo

When I heard of Oslo, the bile rose in my throat

As the numbers exploded, it didn't matter the exact quote

On this day after the madness what can one say

To the shocked and hurting people of Norway

As one of their land

With weapons in hand

Attacked where they led a peaceful life

Going about their business, a husband; a wife

Then on to a camp of mere children protected only by tents

Who came to be slaughtered under his police pretense

Motive clear only in a warped and twisted mind

Another crazy way that insanity is defined

Please Pray for the Families and the People of Norway

      A very difficult poem to read through to mark this tragic time.
