Spring Break Spring Shootings in Panama City

College students flock to Florida for booze, sex and partying in the warm Florida sun
But not for the pain of being shot by a 40 caliber handgun
Seven students were shot in Panama City in the early morning hours
A spring break party really gone sour
The shooter, a student from Alabama A&M, was quickly caught
Now answers to why he started shooting need to be sought
One thing is certain, one thing gun safety rules have always taught
Booze and guns do not mix well, way too easy in someone’s rage to get shot
Spring break should be an excuse to escape the cold and head south to the beach
Exams done, pleasures and fun for a week within easy reach
But not to a young body be exposed to a 40 caliber gun
Not what parents thought when their kids headed off to the Florida sun
