Nashville Explosion

The tree is out
Gifts wrapped
Suns up
Warm coffee
House peaceful
Finally
Christmas classics
Crackle pop
The news is on
Instead
Introduced
To charred buildings
Charred streets
An explosion
In Nashville
Not the norm
Christmas Morn
A 2020 Christmas Day

I wrote this on Christmas Day after hearing about what happened and posted it on Twitter. My thoughts are with all the people that were affected by this selfish act.
