Everyday

it was a vicious attack
thats what they say
a man was beaten badly
and left for dead today

it was a vicious attack
thats what they said
a baby was cut from the womb
the mother left for dead

it was a vicious attack
thats what they say
suicide bombers killed
more soldiers today

it was vicious attack
thats what they said
kids came to school with guns
shot their classmates dead

it was a vicious attack
thats what they say
a man rapes and kills
a woman today

it was a vicious attack
thats what they said
a dog chewed a baby up
till he was dead

vicious attacks occurring
everyday
are humans worse than animals
not sure what to say

Morbid poem but true. All of these events have happended within the decade. Keep writing!
Hey, girl, it's Darla, from Starlite-didn't know you wrote here as well. I started here, and decided to post some of mine just today....especially the one on my being hurt.....LostSandy.... Darla....see yah. I commented on this earlier at Starlite...still good.
Good question sandy! Some clearly are I'd say. Humans should have enough understanding to realise they have a choice in what they do. I appreciate the predisposing forces of genes and nurture, but they do not fully determine our every move. There is a little scope in the equation for free choice and responsibility. But for some, other irresistible imperatives appear to prevail. Sorry to ramble. You got me thinking with this fine provocative piece of work. Very effective use of repetition.
Animal insticts coming out and reacting to an overly populated enviroment...perhaps?
