Parkland School Shooting Points Out the Need For More Mental Illness Treatment of Our Youth


The Parkland School mass shooter Nicolas Cruz
Pled guilty and now is on trial to see if his life he will lose
He was listening to “Pumped Up Kicks” while in his Uber death ride
A dark song by Foster the People about troubled youth who turn to a gun at their side
The futility of trying to out run the gun and its ammo
That when it strikes flesh either wounds or delivers a death blow
Nicolas Cruz has stated it’s up to the families of the victims whether he lives or dies
None of them are on the jury as we wonder how much of their testimony of loss the jury will rely
Each time a mass shooting occurs the left focuses on the need for gun control
And not what causes the utter corruption  by mental illness of the shooters’ soul
In a world without guns of any kind
Those mentally ill would a knife or other weapon find
Be it an axe, club, shovel or even a car
Without treating mental illness so impossible to killings bar
Only a possible reduction in the numbers slain
Along with a reduction in the number on the lack of treatment who complain
