In this time of tragedy, it does my heart good,
To see peoples so diverse as allies.
Evil’s terror brings unity, just as it should,
With “Je suis Charlie” their defiant battle cry.
How must it have felt staring fate in the face
When our wrath brought their final curtain call.
Surely their God, will not bring them to grace
Instead down to Hell they must fall.
What God could condone their horrible acts,
Murdering innocents over Charlie’s cartoon.
Under guise of offense, an excuse for attacks,
Their cause becomes fodder for lampoon.
So pray on this day and stand steadfast as one, for us all they cannot defeat.
To live by the gun is to die by the gun, let us hope this will never repeat.
