With deep regret.

Once again we mourn, the loss of a great soul
Whose unselfish life was ended, by a selfish devotee
Unknown, his motivation, or his intended goal,
But by his mindless violence, he killed a great MP.

These belated words, just describe the great frustration.
Of those who write, too late, their superficial lines
Knowing, those who really need, their thoughtful explanation
Are those who never read, or learn the message of our times.

How do we stem the actions of a misguided mind?
How do we determine, where such danger lies?
In truth, we can but encourage, so others do not find
Reaction to a problem, relies on using knives.

    1. Thank you Huw. I know these things require more consideration, but when something upsets me, I have to do it now!
      Slight correction of grammar (yes, I do think it matters), in the two last lines, so I hope you still think they are apposite.
