Six Months

Six months ago this weekend
fifty one people at prayer
mown down by machine gun fire
killed in cold blood.

Many more survived injured
with multiple bullet wounds.

Others mown down outside
lifted into cars by passers by
driven to the hospital.

First responders lifted the
wounded out of the mosque
then lifted out the dead.

Hospital staff spent long hours
treating long lines of injured.

Council took tributes from
the main road flower wall
for display in remembrance
at the city art gallery.

Memorial gatherings in the park.

Silent majority speak out.
Stop the racist minority.
