From Gloom to Bloom by JBF

From gloom to bloom by JBF

Blooms glow out from gloom
Boys hopscotch from door to room
 Dogs growl, cock crows, moms frown
Pop, Pop, Pop, Glocks boom.
Horror’s tools to doom fools
Who follow crooks
Who scorn good books
To look cool.

Mom, hollow from sorrow
Howls. Rocks, too.
To know Bobby got shot
By fool’s shots.

Pop mops hot brows
Too strong to howl
Holds on to jowl
Sorrow grows

Tomorrow fools drop
Tomorrow glocks stop
Tomorrow no goons
Tomorrow blooms soon
