after every massacre
by some fanaticized pathological idiots
politicians call upon their citizens
to come together
and pray for the murdered and their families

this is absolutely appropriate

but it seems
that ever since 9/11
the nation only comes together
AFTER more of its members have been killed

I wish very much
that the nation
Β Β  AND politicians
would come together
BEFOREΒ Β the next massacre
and take appropriate action
to prevents such disasters
in the first place
