Those Photographs

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Those photographs caused so much heartache.
A life shattering image, many hearts to break.
A young boy was asked to identify his Mum.
Do people know how much damage was done?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Can you imagine such a photograph to view?
In need of massive strength and God’s help too.
A photograph you’d be never likely to forget.
A game of football everyone all lived to regret.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Try to imagine the horror of that task to perform.
Then followed the corruption, lies and the scorn.
It still beggars belief what happened that day.
And why those photographs ended up on display.

A lad just 13 years of age went the match with his Mum, later that day the police asked him to identify a Polaroid of his Mum who died in the crush…JUSTICE FOR ALL

Thanks for reading.
