Professor Shoots Himself To Protest Trump?

Another case of Trump Derangement Syndrome taken to levels that are absurd
At Southern Nevada University shooting himself to protest Trump was a Professor Bird
Whether it was an attempt of suicide or an attention driven stunt to early to tell
But clearly an example of the loss of civility and increase in divisiveness answering the political bell
During the War in Vietnam we witnessed Norman Morrison self immolating in front of the Pentagon to protest
A failed deadly attempt trying to the War in Vietnam end with his Buddhist Monk aping fiery death arrest
In Vietnam civilians and American troops were dying and being maimed
Protesting students here felt helpless to the forces of a terrible needless war tame
To commit suicide to protest and try to stop a viewed evil cause one can understand
We saw it on 9/11 and in the suicide bombings that plague too many lands
But to shoot oneself when the economy is roaring with unemployment at all time lows and jobs at all time highs
Is an unexplainable distortion of reality and calls into question whether Bird wanted to really die
He will be soon on several firearm counts be arraigned
Maybe the true motive will be revealed as a stunt or a troubled brain
