MIDNIGHT AT CLUB Q

I found this poem written by Clifford Lake as a response to one of my posts on Tribel – the new social media platform I’ve been testing.

I tried to reblog but the platform Cliff uses doesn’t have the option.

For this reason, I share the words of his post here!!

It happened again, it happened in Club Q.

Just a place in Colorado Springs, something to do.

A Saturday night that most would survive,

A Saturday night that claimed the lives of five.

A long rifle blazes, an AR15 style,

A 22-year-old gunman, what has caused his rile?

What is the motive, were they people he knew?

Or was it religious fervor, hatred of LGBTQ?

No one should have to die because of who they dance with,

No one should have to die because of who they kiss.

No one should have to die because of who attracts them,

No one should have to die for reasons like this,

But they do.

And they have.

And they do.

A nightclub where they felt home, it was their safe space,

Now a killing floor, it is forever defaced.

What makes a man so disrespectful of any life, what makes him kill?

When do we stop the slaughter, it is on all of us now, this ill.

No one should have to die because of who they dance with,

No one should have to die because of who they kiss.

No one should have to die because of who attracts them,

No one should have to die for reasons like this,

But they do.

And they have.

And they do.

How much longer now?

And how many more?

It has to stop somehow,

Before it’s at our door.

No one should have to die because of who they dance with,

No one should have to die because of who they kiss.

No one should have to die because of who attracts them,

No one should have to die for reasons like this,

But they do.

And they have.

And they do.
