Welcome to Post-weekend Poetry and the seventy-first poem in this series. This week’s piece is by romance, paranormal, Gothic and comedy author, and poet Linda Hays Gibbs.
I am crying, I can’t see
I am disgusted I can’t believe
Why Are They Killing the Children
What is happening where and when?
Why are they killing the children
What type of monster is this we see
Coming across our TV
A new type of man or creed
A Spawn from hell a demon seed
A man with no conscious or fear of Hell
A man who has a lust to kill
I don’t think a man but an abomination
But God is not mocked by your sins on a nation
You will pay the price when you die
You will pay for God does not lie
So get ready for your retribution
There will be your death soon and jubilation
All children go to heaven’s well
But you sir, will go to hell!
A very touching piece. Thank you, Linda, for sending it to me.
Linda D. Hays-Gibbs was born in Mississippi and married at a young age. She went back to school late in life, graduated with a BA in Anthropology from University of Alabama. She always loved Indiana Jones. Anthropology was so exciting to her until she could not use her imagination to write her papers. Her instructor insisted she stick with the facts not fantasy.
She loved to write poetry and jot it down all the time. Her fourth book, “My Angel, My Light As Darkness Falls” really meant more to her because she worked on it for such a long time and because she was determined to make her writing much better than it had been. Kim Richards and Sally Odgers from Eternal Press were inspirations for her. Barbara Metzger, one of her favourite authors gave her encouragement too. She loves writing and hopes to continue to do it for the rest of her life along with anything she can do for her God and children. You can also find out more about her from:
