Tragedy

The response is the same.
Thoughts and prayers.

An image to share.
A hashtag to tweet.
Digital sympathy to like.

To remind us all you’re still there.

It happened again.
Another big one.
More people died
in a senseless act.

And you posted on social media
That you cared
in a senseless act.
