3rd Deadliest School Massacre

Trigger Warning: Sensitive content ahead.

On 16 December 2014, six gunmen affiliated with the Tehrik-i-Taliban conducted a terrorist attack on the Army Public School in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar. Peshawar massacre is the third-deadliest school massacre by death toll (Wikipedia).

More than 300 children lost their lives on, what seemed like, a normal school day.



Now the alarm trills.

We rush to the doors,

Some hide under chairs

Some look out windowsills.

It’s time for art class,

Or a seminar in the auditorium,

We can’t tell.

We’ve no inkling of the horror to follow

But our hearts beat fast,

Preparing us to experience a whole new hell.

Mummy always said

Only angels come

For little children.

Then why’s the bad man

Making us kids
