A Prayer

Death came out of  the sky.

Those left  behind can only  ask why.

Their loved ones  snatched  so cruelly  from them

They were just innocent souls not yet ready for heaven.

 

May  the good lord take these souls and give  them peace.

May  their loved ones  be given answers and release.

May  their  murders be brought  to book, named  and shamed

May  this please stop now, may  the like of  this not be  seen again.
