Out of the shadow world

Out of the shadow world,
Eight children dead;

The words stare at me blankly,
Two more die in a siege of terror;

Over the page are more hollow platitudes,
Because there is really nothing to say;

What of a cricket bat left outside the door now,
Of course they are deeply shocked and saddened.
