An atheist gets a Christmas reminder


In the bleak mid-winter
a kid with a gun
killed twenty children.
'Happy Christmas
Everyone!'


Westboro baptists say
it's the work of God.
Fuck them. But if they're
right: Fuck Him too,
and His son.

Second Amendment


Sam rolled up his sleeves.
Cleared columbine
from the sandy soil
and with his
bare arms,
toiled.

Wielding the spade,
he dug another
twenty
schoolkids'
graves.
