Beslan

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football took a back seat today
Buried along with peace tolerance love
And I wish someone somewhere
Could explain to me how men and women
Can wake up
Strap on bombs and guns
For belts
Speak of “freedom”
And then murder children
I don’t care what your “cause”
I don’t care what your “Liberation”
Show me a bible where it says
“GO FORTH AND MURDER CHILDREN”
Show me humanity where it says
“Murder is acceptable”
Show me a reason
Because I can’t see one
In the murder of innocent children.

Notes

For those who were murdered so brutally in Beslan 3/9/04RIP
