SIX (© John MacLean 2013)
Winter morning magic
As we walk to school
Jack Frost makes you smile
You are only six

Hearing others laugh
You rush on to join
Then you turn around
And shyly wave goodbye

They say guns don't do the killing
I say bullets make them gone
And someone buys those bullets
And puts them in his gun
And since he has a semi
His work is quickly done
As he shoots our little children
One by one by one

Late sun, long shadows
Mark this lonely path
Through our weary church yard
How the world has slipped

Standing in attendance
As you slowly leave
Then I turn around
As if to say goodbye

You were only six
