It Will Always Be

The first time it happens

You can be excused

Because of the events

You could not foretell 

The second time it happens

You need a good excuse

For letting the event happen

That you could foresee

When it happens next 

No excuses have you left

For you by failing to react

Are complicit in the deaths

So spare me your false tears

We’ve seen them down the years

We don’t want your prayers

We want you to make a pact

That you will give us protection

We want to see some action

Your eyes should now be open

To the carnage your inaction

Continues to allow happen
