40 Little Feets

by jkojak67

I wrote this poem in remembrance of those that died on 12/14.

Night fell upon Newtown on a cold chilly morning in December, a day that everyone there will always remember. The shadow of a dark knight had traveled from mountains west, far, far away. It came looking for innocent souls, and used a crazed youth to take twenty six of them away that day. Principals, teachers, mothers and wives, young boys and girls with big playground eyes. Two to the chest, one to the head, bang-bang-bang, and they were all dead. Nevermore the pitter-patter of 40 little feets, bouncing off the walls in the halls like joyful drum beats. They sleep softly now under the dirt, but you can only bury their bodies, not the hurt.

There were so many, but to name only a few. There was Charlotte Bacon, the little ginger in her new pink dress and boots, what a hoot. James Mattitoli, everyone called him J, he loved hamburgers, and bacon, but his mom’s French Toast the most. Ana Marquez-Greene with her big grin, she will surly smile when she sees her family again in heaven and wonder where they’ve been. Caroline Previdi--silly Caroline, and Madeleine Hsu, the shy girl who loved dogs, I am sorry that we couldn’t protect you. The teachers tried, and many died. They flung themselves at the madman to no avail, and tried to use their flesh as a shield, but the bullets tore right through them as the gunman refused to yield. Poor kids, they should be outside playing, or coloring pretty princesses and unicorns in their books, not lying in pools of blood at Sandy Hook.

At least they are free, free of this terrible place. What now do we the living do? First the assassins came for our presidents, then our kings, do we let them have our children to? The one who can’t be named was clearly insane, but who to blame, him…them…us? The NRA can’t even understand why there’s any fuss. How long before we confess that Bushmasters and AR-15’s aren’t really any good for game like deer, but great for human beings, especially, horribly, for pre-teens it seems. Please hear their silent pleas and stop the madness, this gun craziness is bringing about much too much sadness. They are looking down upon us now, like the sun through broken clouds, can’t you hear them softly cry as they ask—mommy, mommy, mommy…why?

Let Me Try This Again...

by jkojak67

I realize that many Kossacks did not think that it was appropriate for me to post a dairy  about the doomsday theories surrounding the upcoming end of the Mayan calendar (Mayan Doomsday Prophecy Real?). I get it...I am sorry...It was a long election year and I am sure that many of us are burned out reading about what some crazy ass teabagger says, or what a "boner" John Boehner is. I wanted to provide a vehicle to generate some discussion on a topical and controversial subject, and think that I succeeded. It is my belief that writing, like art, should provoke some type of response, or whats the point? I am proud that this was my first diary because it generated over 120 comments, and (even if they were all calling me a moron) I will take that over the Rec List any day .

Mayan Doomsday Prophecy Real?

by jkojak67

On Dec. 21the Mayan’s 5,125 year Long Count Calendar comes to an end, at which point many people think that the world will destroyed in a fiery cataclysm. One scientist’s research seems to indicate that the Mayan prophecies may be real based on alarming new data. Danish Geophysicist Dr. Sven Hassel has been studying the cycles of the Earth’s magnetic sphere since the 1970’s, and his research has turned up some surprising evidence that may have potentially catastrophic consequences. See what he has discovered after the fold.
