Welcome to ~PoetryToTheMasses' weekly feature.

This is the final feature (one sooner than anticipated because apparently one of the suggested poems has been removed). I would like to once again thank everyone who has supported us in any way since we started, three whole years ago!

Please +favlove this article and watch ~PoetryToTheMasses  or join #Poetry-To-The-Masses to show your support.

streets are not playgrounds. B    A    M
    goes the gun
 no one told her to run
  now her daughter
 lies waiting for a mom
   she doesn't know 
will never come

The majority of our info on poems and poets comes from Wikipedia. Sometimes I do a better job of putting it into my own words than others.
