Different shapes for different states

The shape of a state
A small or large size
Who was in charge
How was this devised

Long and narrow
And some that are square
Plus one that’s so small
It doesn’t seem fair

The Lone Star state
Takes up much space
It can take a whole day
Driving out of that place

States with panhandles
I can think of two
A neighboring state
They did squeeze through

On our license plates
Different slogans appear
Like the Lone Star State
On the front and the rear

The Great Debate

The great debate
Watch it and see
The promises made
To you and to me

Questions are asked
A full array
But who’s in the lead
Can vary each day

Lengthy answers
While running this race
The 6th of November
The voters they’ll face

Enough is enough

 When people get killed
In  war zone space
There are also those shot
At an innocent place

They went to a movie
And were anxious to see
A midnight showing
Stated on the marquee

A night out with friends
With laughter and fun
Some paid with their lives
When the end wasn’t done

Enough is enough
This shooting must stop
At restaurants and schools                                                                          
And stores where we shop

On July 20, 2012, a mass shooting occurred at a Century movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, during a midnight screening of the film The Dark Knight Rises. A gunman, dressed in tactical clothing, set off tear gas grenades and shot into the audience with multiple firearms, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others, the highest number of casualties in an American mass shooting. The sole suspect is James Eagan Holmes, who was arrested outside the cinema minutes later.
