Another stunningly-sad scene plays out on the T.V. screen.
Another mass-shooting, an evil-beyond-understanding scene.
But this one is different--terror comes to our shore,
with implications and consequences too hard to ignore.
A new chapter with which we have to contend.
one hard truth is coming, our days of it's happening somewhere else are at an end.
I hope I'm wrong, God, I hope I'm wrong--and so it'll begin,
the misguided retaliation against an entire religion, the wrong spin
will be given by a handful of idiots, who blame the entire for the few,
"We'll show them!" is what they'll say and, unfortunately, do.
They'll take it upon themselves to mete out a skewered justice,
against them all, even though the vast majority are blameless.
It's just human nature, I guess, to fear what we don't understand,
and there is no understanding the religious extremist's brand.
