Cannot Replace

What do call 73 million dollars taken from a from manufacturers bank account?
A good start.

73 million dollars sure sounds like a lot. It’s not.
Not when it is weighed against the loss of a child.
”Hey, that’s big bucks,” you say. “I’d give it a shot.”
Parents’d give all to see when their child last smiled.

What is the equation when it is money versus life?
How do gun sellers and users make any argument?
From an image of marchers with a drum and a fife,
and remain deaf, no matter how we plead or vent.

Gun and computer makers target kids with violence.
Video games with assault weapons; so easy to kill anyone
Violent politicians echoed by fulsome political silence.
Thoughts and prayers cannot replace a daughter or son.
