Blue comes in many shades,
but the pain felt will never fade.
devastated the minute it rose the gun.
Change by violence, is utter nonsense.
Execution. Cowardice denies the prosecution.
Where is love? Where is humanity?
One more news story and I’ll lose my sanity.
The more we demolish, the less we can undo.
The war in which we are engaged, continually fueled by rage,
No survivors, no winners, no spoils.
Another holiday spoiled.
Too many tables with empty chairs,
the world is beyond repair.
Two brave men lost their lives today,
brothers in blue, forever they will stay.
