Gunshots, bloodshed and gore
Destruction unparalleled heretofore.
And even while the world sleeps…
A city seethes, and hearts bleed.
And families vexed;
A city cries out, in distress.
Valiant warriors fighting hard;
Terrorists killing with disregard.
Both are destined to die…
Without a murmur or a sigh.
Shattered is the belief of the country
Inept and incompetent is this democracy
Vote banks be more precious a commodity
Than the people or humanity
Random fools out on streets
Sitting there, here or right next to me
Can be the carriers of distress
But arise from the flames we shall
Like the phoenix of great myths
And no longer will a city seethe
No longer will hearts bleed.
