Pancake house shooting,

Air show crash killing dozens,

Grandma stomped to death,


Motorcycle gang

shoot-out inside casino,

Highest joblessness,


College girls’ bodies

Rotting in fields, judge shot,

Sewer fund gutted,


Corporate handout bonds,

Wildfire burning my city.

(time to leave Reno)

One thought on “Headlines

    Hopefully that was poetic license Reno needs all its good people to stay, I’ve come to love this city its been a brutal year. Thanx for the poem.
