Roseburg English Class 101
Some said it sounded like a heavy book
slammed down a darkened well with stifled thud.
Some said they heard no murmur made them look
beyond idyllic, lovely forest bud.
But sadness lies within the hearts that hear
the truth of man’s inhuman selfish drive.
The madness of that page leave all in fear:
reads “none of us may happen to survive”.
Home-grown, our terrorist with hero’s might
gives evil its demonic, callous face
with gun held close to head makes us recite
what love we have as part of human race.
