Reb & Vodka

A Poem by Sarah Emily

A poem about Dylan and Eric, better known as the Columbine shooters.

Back to 1999
Kurt's been six feet under
for five years following
one shotgun blast
and three times the lethal dose of heroin.
A couple of murder conspiracy theorists wonder
wouldn't it take two?
Added to the thirteen lives lost at Columbine
April 20th, 1999
but we so easily forget to count the two
broken boys who gave their lives for one voice, ignored.
Now only heard as 12-gauge or TEC-9.
Two, added to the thirteen lives lost at Columbine.
Death toll excluding, 
yet you still wonder why
they pulled the trigger.
