An eighty two year old stabbed
his wife who was ten years younger.
It could have been funny
except that he killed her.
They had Spanish names and lived
in a neighborhood that used to be
cornfields and barns but now is
jam-packed with houses that
all look the same.
And I think the whole family lives there,
their kids and their kids
which makes it more tragic
than we can bear to think.
It's obvious grandpa was nuts,
losing his mind and he always yelled
at grandma but no one thought
anything like this could ever happen.
Oh my God, I could cry.
